Subcycle quantum physics

Speaker: Prof. Rupert Huber, University of Regensburg

Latest progress in ultrafast optics has enabled scientists to accelerate electrons in solids directly by the carrier wave of light. A fascinating quantum world unfolds on the sub-optical-cycle scale, including Bloch oscillations, quasiparticle collisions, and high-harmonic generation. By combining this approach with ultramicroscopy we take the first femtosecond snapshot image of a molecular orbital and the first femtosecond single-molecule movie.

Time and Place: 15:00, Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, Seminar Room A1.500, Staudtstr. 2, 91058 Erlangen
