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.
A switch for the future
The movie shows how scientists of the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics try to speed up future technologies by using light as a switch.


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.
