Laser Pulse turns Glass into a Metal

For tiny fractions of a second, quartz glass can take on metallic properties, when it is illuminated be a laser pulse. This has been shown by calculations at the Vienna University of Technology. The effect could be used to build...

The Silver Age of Austrian Logic

Once again, Vienna is one of the capitals of logic research, more than 80 years after Kurt Gödel wrote down his incompleteness theorems. The Vienna Circle started the golden age of logic. Now, a new “silver age” has begun.

Steering Chemical Reactions with Laser Pulses

With ultra-short laser pulses, chemical reactions can be controlled at the Vienna University of Technology. Electrons have little mass and are therefore influenced by the laser, whereas the atomic nuclei are much heavier and are...
