It was not everything perfect

Nowadays, the high-order harmonic generation process is an extended useful tool for the study of femtosecond dynamics. Nevertheless, there are still many doubts regarding the electron behavior inside different types of mediums. Recent studies in solid targets have revealed new scenarios with extraordinary electronic dynamics compared with atoms or molecules. The process in solids can be

Meeting in Salamanca of the Scientific Advisory Committee of ATTOSTRUCTURA project

Next August will be thirty months since the ATTOSTRUCTURA project began, which means that half of its duration has already elapsed. For this reason, the first meeting of the project’s scientific advisory committee has been held. The committee, made up of external researchers who are experts in the different fields of the project, has the

High fashion jewelry in non-linear optics

Sterling silver jewelry, rose gold with exclusive designs, rings, earrings, bracelets… made out of light? Like a high fashion jewelry workshop, the Laser and Photonics Applications research group of the University of Salamanca (ALF-USAL) focuses its efforts on designing light jewels through non-linear optics. Jewels, not only for their beauty in the form of high-frequency

Jila Press Release – A Necklace Made of Doughnuts

Our friends and frequent collaborators from JILA (University of Colorado) echo the paper “Necklace-structured high-harmonic generation for low-divergence, soft x-ray harmonic combs with tunable line spacing” recently published in ScienceAdvances. You can read his review at the following link: More information at: Rego, L., Brooks, N. J., Nguyen, Q. L. D., San Roman, J.,

Compressing light pulses in pressure gradients

In spite of having an extremely short life, of just a few quadrillionths of a second, ultrashort femtosecond laser pulses have become an indispensable tool in many areas of science and technology, as they allow to probe the most fundamental properties of matter on ultrafast time scales. Generating these such short pulses of light in
