Ultrafast writing with light

Due to the ever-increasing growth of our data consumption, researchers are looking for faster, more efficient, and more energy-conscious data storage techniques. TU/e researcher Youri van Hees uses ultrashort light pulses ...

Measuring times in billionths of a billionth of a second

How fast do electrons inside a molecule move? Well, it is so fast that it takes them just a few attoseconds (a billionth of billionth of a second) to jump from one atom to another. Blink and you missed it—millions of billions ...

Pulses driven by artificial intelligence tame quantum systems

It's easy to control the trajectory of a basketball: Just apply mechanical force coupled with human skill. But controlling the movement of quantum systems such as atoms and electrons is much more challenging, as these minuscule ...

Engineers develop a low-cost terahertz camera

Terahertz radiation, whose wavelengths lie between those of microwaves and visible light, can penetrate many nonmetallic materials and detect signatures of certain molecules. These handy qualities could lend themselves to ...
