DLS: Subcycle quantum physics

Speaker:
Prof. Rupert Huber
University of Regensburg


 

Abstract:
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.


 

About DLS:
The Distinguished Lecturer Series (DLS) follows a colloquium format for a broad audience and will be followed by a reception to provide an opportunity for meeting the speaker.
