    Laser Pulses Trigger Ultrafast Material Property Shift

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Researchers from the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society and the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter demonstrated the ability to use light to achieve a novel type of ultrafast switch. The efforts stem from the collaborators’ pursuit of ever-increasing speed in electronics and computing technologies. Transistors that turn electrical currents on and off quickly are pillars of those technologies.

    The researchers’ focus was to induce changes in a material’s properties, such as making magnetic materials nonmagnetic or changing the electric conductivity of a crystal. Electrical properties of a material relate strongly to the arrangement of the electrons within the crystal. As such,…
