Virtual tour through the kingdom of ions

This 360-degree picture (keep the left button of the mouse pressed and pull) shows the experimental chamber of the team of Prof. Jörg Schreiber at the Laboratory for Extreme Photonics (Lex Photonics). Here Schreiber and his colleagues perform experiments regarding laser-driven ion acceleration. The developed prototype setups are going to move to the Centre for Advanced Laser Applications (CALA) in the coming months, we recorded them in detail before its move.


Publication on medicalphysicsweb

MAP researchers from LMU contributed to a collaborative NIH-driven project of US researchers from UT Southwestern Medical Center on a GPU-based Monte Carlo engine for carbon ion therapy, resulting in a joint publication in Physics in Medicine and Biology which has been featured in MedicalPhysicsWeb.

News article about the shortest ever measured time period

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.
