Spiegel Online featured an article about the MAP publication 'Attosecond correlation dynamics' (Nature physics, 7. November 2016, doi: 10.1038/nphys3941). In the article MAP member Martin Schultze explains how the zeptosecond stopwatch he and his team invented, works.
In a TV report for the program Abendschau, the Bayerischer Rundfunk features Jörg Schreiber and his 'Super-Laser' in Lex Photonics.
The Neue Züricher Zeitung is currently featuring an article about phase-contrast x-ray imaging and the new Center for Advanced Laser Applications (CALA), which is currently under construction. The reporter interviewed members from the Cluster of Excellence, Prof. Ferenc Krausz and Prof. Franz Pfeiffer.
In a TV portrayal of Franz Pfeiffer, BR alpha features the way in which a new X-ray method will improve diagnostics of cancer and osteoporosis.
Molecular biologist Dr. Mihaela Zigman’s career trajectory has brought her to Munich as a member of the MAP Excellence Cluster. Here, she will supervise the biomedical side of a new interdisciplinary project in Prof. Dr. Ferenc Krausz’s Department. The project aims to employ high-intensity femtosecond pulses of infrared laser light to detect specific molecules present in vanishingly small amounts in human cells, blood samples or respired air.
We interviewed her to learn about her research and the work she is doing in the MAP Excellence Cluster.
