Faculty of Engineering, LTH

Welcome to Atomic Physics!

Info

The Division of Atomic Physics at the Faculty of Engineering (LTH), Lund University, Sweden has a staff of over 50 researchers including guest researchers and graduate students. The research at the division is mainly based on the use of lasers, ranging from diode lasers to terawatt lasers at the High-Power Laser Facility. Some areas of research are: fundamental atomic and molecular physics including interactions between intense laser-fields and matter and VUV/XUV laser spectroscopy, quantum electronics, quantum optics and solid state spectroscopy, applied molecular spectroscopy, laser applications in medicine and biology, and industrial applications.

Så ofattbart snabbt slits en elektron loss från en atom

Forskare har i en världsunik mätning klockat tiden för hur lång – eller snarare kort – tid det tar för en elektron att slitas loss från en atom. Resultatet är 0,000 000 000 000 000 10 sekunder, eller 10 miljarddelar av en miljarddels sekund. Forskarnas tidtagarur är extremt korta ljuspulser. Metoden kan på sikt ge nya inblickar i några av naturens mest grundläggande processer, är förhoppningen. Rönen publiceras i Science.
