"Where motion comes to life”
Motion plays a pivotal role in life, the universe, and everything.
- Why do things start to move?
- How fast are the smallest movements?
- When does quantum motion turn classically visible?
- In what way can we steer movements?
- What is time?
In our division's → research we use “fast” bright light and multi-dimensional measurement techniques to illuminate these and further questions evolving around the dynamical quantum world.
The motion of an electron in a strong infrared laser field is tracked in real time by means of a novel method developed by MPIK physicists and applied…
