And the Nobel Prize in Physics 2023 goes to...?
"Nobel Prize in Physics 2023 awarded to Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz and Anne L'Huilliere"
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2023 has been awarded to Pierre Agostini (The Ohio State University, Columbus, USA), Ferenc Krausz (Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, Garching and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany), Anne L’Huillier (Lund University, Sweden) “for experimental methods that generate attosecond pulses of light for the study of electron dynamics in matter
In a film, a series of still images is perceived as continual movement by human eyes. If we want to investigate really brief events, we need special technology. In the world of electrons, changes occur in a few tenths of an attosecond – an attosecond is so short that there are as many in one second as there have been seconds since the birth of the universe. The laureates’ experiments have produced pulses of light so short that they are measured in attoseconds, demonstrating that these pulses can be used to provide images of processes inside atoms and molecules.
