Research in quadrillionths of a second

Claus Ropers’ Department of Ultrafast Dynamics applies innovative methods to investigate electronic, structural, and magnetic processes in solids, nanostructures, and on surfaces. Variety to the daily laboratory life brings the team with a wide range of ventures and creative ideas. more

New quantum technology combines free electrons and photons

Scientists at our institute, together with colleagues from Switzerland, succeeded in generating controlled electron-photon pairs in an electron microscope. The study’s findings expand the toolbox of quantum technology. more

ERC Advanced Grants for Hannelore Ehrenreich and Claus Ropers

The European Research Council (ERC) funds the two researchers from our institute with around 2.5 million euros each. 1,735 scientists applied for the ERC Advanced Grants, 253 of them succeeded in the competition for the best research projects. more

New laser technology for electron microscopes

Researchers from Göttingen and Switzerland have manipulated an electron beam using an optical microchip for the first time. Their experiments open the way to new quantum mechanical measurement methods in electron microscopy. (in German) more

Claus Ropers is appointed as new Director at the institute

The physicist took up the position in part-time and will continue to work as Professor of Experimental Solid State Physics at the University of Göttingen for the time being. Together with his team, he will develop experimental methods allowing for the observation of microscopic processes on very short time scales. For this purpose, Ropers uses ultrafast electron microscopy – a field to which he has made a decisive contribution and in which he is one of the leading scientists worldwide. more
