    Shaking atoms and watching them dance at a higher and forbidden tempo

    Researchers use ultrashort x-ray pulses to observe how intense terahertz electric fields drive atomic vibrations in a quantum material into strong anharmonic regimes, accessing elusive higher-frequency modes.

    Classic double-slit experiment in a new light

    An international research group develops new X-ray spectroscopy method based on the classical double-slit experiment to gain new insights into the physical properties of solids

    Steering is an essential feature of non-locality in quantum theory

    A physical theory is called non-local when observers can produce instantaneous effects over distant systems. Non-local theories rely on two fundamental effects: local uncertainty relations and steering of physical states at a distance. In quantum mechanics, the former one dominates the other in non-local games. A new study proved that the entanglement-based steering also plays an important role.
