Towards reproducible science with Jupyter Notebooks

11-May-2021

Software plays a key role in modern science. Experiments that produce large amounts of data generally need substantial software-based analysis to extract understanding. Simulation-based research in particular yields results based solely on the computer-based generation of data and its subsequent ...

Lighting it up: fast material manipulation through a laser

23-Apr-2021

Researchers from the Physical Chemistry Department of the Fritz Haber Institute and the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg have found out that ultrafast switches in material properties can be prompted by laser pulses – and why. This knowledge may enable new ...

Long live superconductivity!

Pathbreaking advance: Short flashes of light with sustaining impact

09-Feb-2021

Superconductivity – the ability of a material to transmit an electric current without loss – is a quantum effect that, despite years of research, is still limited to very low temperatures. Now a team of scientists at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in ...

Scientists dramatically enhance the achievable resolution at free-electron lasers with a new technique

20-Jan-2021

Hard X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) have delivered intense, ultrashort X-ray pulses for over a decade. One of the most promising applications of XFELs is in biology, where researchers can capture images down to the atomic scale even before the radiation damage destroys the sample. In physics ...

Groundbreaking method to map the interaction between atomically thin layers

18-Jan-2021

When two atomically thin layers of a material are stacked and twisted slightly on top of one another, they can develop radically different properties. They may become superconducting or even develop magnetic or electronic properties due to the interaction of their two layers. The challenge for ...

Inducing transparency by kicking the atoms

11-Jan-2021

All photo-electronic devices work on the basis that the materials inside them absorb, transmit and reflect light. Understanding the photo properties of a specific material at the atomic level not only helps to decide what material to choose for a given application but also opens up ways to ...

Metallic surfaces help molecular quantum switch

Quantum molecular switches operate by hydrogen tunneling with some help

20-Nov-2020

The quantum dynamics of hydrogen is central to many problems in nature, being strongly influenced by the environment in which it takes place. In their contribution to PRL, members of the Lise Meitner Group at the MPSD address hydrogen transfer within a supported molecular switch, showing that the ...

A single molecular switch reveals atomic-scale light dynamics

19-Nov-2020

Researchers at the the University of Regensburg and the MPSD in Hamburg have developed a groundbreaking method to detect the dynamics of light on such a small scale with high temporal resolution. Since the 17th century, researchers have explored tiny objects in their most fundamental detail using ...

A new way to design materials

16-Nov-2020

Crystal symmetry is one of the decisive physical attributes that determines the properties of a material. In particular, the behaviour of an electron is largely affected by the symmetry of the crystal which in turn governs the fundamental behaviour of the material, such as its conductive or ...

Shaking off the correlated-electron traffic jam

17-Mar-2020

An international team of researchers from Switzerland, Germany, the USA and Great Britain has uncovered an anomalous metallic behavior in an otherwise insulating ceramic material. The team used ultrashort light pulses with a wide range of colors to watch what happens when the insulating quasi ...
