Thanks to a process called “high-order harmonic generation” significant progress has been made in generating ultrashort X-ray pulses over the past few years, with a duration of a few attoseconds (equivalent to dividing a second into 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 parts). This extremely short duration is comparable to the time it takes for electrons to transfer between atoms,
María Sánchez, student of the master’s degree in Physics and Technology of Lasers, obtains one of the 20 prestigious international scholarships ‘Optica Woman Scholar’
María Sánchez Hernández, student of the master’s degree in Physics and Technology of Lasers at the University of Salamanca, has won one of the 20 prestigious international “Optica Woman Scholar” scholarships awarded annually by the Optica Foundation to women undergraduate or master’s degrees from all over the world, which will allow her to boost her
The generation of ultra-short light pulses with a good spatial structure is the philosopher’s stone of ultrafast pulse physics. These pulses make it possible to study and modify the properties of matter at time scales unreachable by other procedures. In recent decades, great strides have been made in the generation of high-quality ultrashort pulses among
The Irish physicist Margaret Murnane and the Leonese poet Antonio Colinas were invested as honorary doctors from the University of Salamanca on June 19. The investiture ceremony was presided over by the rector, Ricardo Rivero, and held in the Auditorium of the Escuelas Mayores. The ceremony held in Latin, in which professors Carlos Hernández García
Marta Morales from the Holography and Optical Processing group of the University of Alicante, will give the seminar entitled “Holography for disruptive photovoltaic applications” on June 13 at 10:00. The seminar will take place in room VII of the Trilingual Building at the University of Salamanca.
As in previous years, the students of the Laser and Applications subject of the Physics degree at the University of Zaragoza together with their professor Sebastián Jarabo have visited our group to see first-hand the research being carried out and the operation of the equipment that is part of our laboratories. This year, in addition
