Our exhibition "Lasers | Light | Life " is rapidly taking shape in the ESO Supernova Planetarium and Visitor...
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.
Medicalphysicsweb features an article about accurate monitoring of proton dose distribution for cancer treatment with acoustic means. It refers to a study by MAP-researchers (published as Letter in Physics in Medicine and Biology), who demonstrated so called “ionoacoustic” measurements of proton range in water with submilimetre accuracy at a clinical synchrocyclotron.
The German PM magazine features a portrait of MAP director Prof. Ferenc Krausz in their September issue.
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.
