Periodic Modulation Tweaks Innovative Particle Accelerators

Scientists in Hamburg have come up with an ingenious way of improving so-called plasma accelerators, which are considered promising candidates to become the particle...

Turmoil in Sluggish Electrons’ Existence

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is...

Novel Nozzle Saves Crystals

Thanks to an innovative nozzle, scientists can now analyse more types of proteins while using fewer of the hard-to-get protein crystals. The nozzle can...
electron clouds

Dynamics of Electron Clouds Unravelled

Atoms consist of a positively charged nucleus surrounded by negatively charged electrons. In the quantum physics view, the electrons form a fuzzy cloud. The...

Laser Metronome Achieves Record Synchronization

Scientists at DESY have set up the world's most precise ‘metronome’ for a kilometre-wide network. The timing system synchronizes a 4.7-kilometer-long laser-microwave network with...

Scientists Shrink Electron Gun to Matchbox Size

In a multi-national effort, an interdisciplinary team of researchers from DESY and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has built a new kind of...
