Chemistry is omnipresent. In chemical reactions, atoms are deposited in or between molecules while chemical bonds are formed and broken. These…

Scientists from the Max Born Institute and the Vienna University of Technology present a new, compact laboratory source for ultra-short, hard X-ray…

New experiments with helium atoms make it possible to switch the electron correlation on and off as desired.

During the interaction of an intense extreme ultraviolet (XUV) laser pulse with a cluster, many ions and free electrons are generated, resulting in…

Researchers at the Max Born Institute in Berlin are discovering an ultrafast rectifier for terahertz radiation. In the unit cells of a lithium niobate…

Laser-induced atomic strong-field processes are experimentally investigated almost without exception with progressive (continuous) electromagnetic…

The multi-electron dynamics in atoms and molecules is one of the great challenges of current quantum physics, which is at the background of many…

Examining the dynamics of cluster explosions using intense ultraviolet (XUV) pulses has been limited to large scale research facilities such as Free…

On 13 February 2014, the award winner was selected for the Dissertationspreis Adlershof 2013: Martin Hempel has prevailed against two other nominees…
