IV Photo Contest “Day of Light”

On the occasion of the proclamation of May 16 as “International Day of Light and Light-Based Technologies” by the United Nations Organization, the Master’s Degree in Laser Physics and Technology” announces the IV edition of the Photo Contest “Day of the light”. In the organization of the contest and formation of the jury participate: the

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

Attostructura Seminar – Structuring ultrafast laser light through highly nonlinear physics

On February 2nd, Carlos Hernández García, Ramón y Cajal researcher, member of the Laser and Photonic Applications research group and principal investigator of the Attostructura project (ERC 851201) gave the seminar “Structuring ultrafast laser light through highly nonlinear physics” within the cycle of seminars of the Rocasolano Institute of the CSIC. The degree of control
