Who stole the light?

Self-induced ultrafast demagnetization limits the amount of light diffracted from magnetic samples at soft x-ray energiesCredit: MBI Berlin Free electron X-ray lasers deliver intense ultrashort pulses of x-rays, which can be

Controlled dynamics of colloidal rods

Physicists from Bayreuth develop basic principles for mini-laboratories on chipsCredit: Image: Adrian Ernst. Colloidal particles have become increasingly important for research as vehicles of biochemical agents. In future, it will

Shining a light on disordered and fractal systems

A University of Tsukuba research team uses terahertz-frequency light to probe the unusual behavior of disordered systems to discover that the anonymously large vibrations in lysozyme can be explained by its glassy and fractal nature…

Magnetic field with the edge!

Credit: Atul Kumar A team of Indian and Japanese physicists have overturned the six-decade old notion that the giant magnetic field in a high intensity laser produced plasma evolves from the small, nanometre scale in the bulk plasma . They…
