RElativistic Attosecond Physics Laboratory (REAL)

Research group The goal of relativistic attosecond physics laboratory is laser-driven generation of the shortest light and electron pulses ever achieved, which have durations in the attosecond regime, and their application for filming electron dynamics in matter such as atoms, molecules, and ionized materials, i.e. plasmas. This research is pushing the limits in various fields such as much faster (light-driven) electronics, structure determination in bio-medical sciences or next level temporal metrology.
