Attosecond photography: how to take a picture of an electron with a laser
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
The 2023 Nobel prize in physics was awarded to three scientists who figure out how to use increadibly short and powerful pulses of laser light to capture the motion of electron orbiting the nucleus, and thus to get an unprescedented look into the dynamics of atoms and molecules. Professor Seth Aubin will attempt to explain the physical phenomena that made this possible. Please join us for our beloved PhysicsFest Nobel(-inspired) public lecture. This lecture is intended for a general audience.
