An attosecond physicist on the way to his doctor's degree
Johannes Schötz is one of the PhD students in the team of the Laboratory of Attosecond Physics. During summer 2017 we have accopompanied him with the camera. Here we present his work at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität.
Movies out of the microcosm
The view inside the laboratory of Electron Diffractometry shows how LMU physicists control electron pulses with Terahertz radiation and how they use them to produce movies of the microcosm.
Sluggish electrons
Our video from the laboratory shows scientists exploring how electrons react under the influence of light by using attosecond light flashes.


Experiments and more — From competitions, to current events, to a look inside the Photonlab, the student laboratory at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics. Here, you will find everything worth knowing — especially for students.


Simply explained — Light is fascinating, hugely versatile and quite complex. With our video series, you can quickly delve into the mysteries surrounding photons, electrons and lasers.
