A quick look at electron-boson coupling

Berkeley Lab researchers use ultrafast spectroscopy on many body effects

10-10-2014

Imagine being able to tune the properties of a solid material just by flashing pulses of light on it, for example turning an insulator into a superconductor. That is just one potential payoff down-the-road from the physical phenomenon of electrons and atoms interacting with ultrashort pulses of ...
