The Future of Ultrashort Laser Pulses

View of a thin-disc laser

Next-generation approaches to the production of ultrashort flashes of laser light – the so-called third generation of femtosecond laser pulses – are stimulating further advances in the investigation of ultrafast processes in the realm of the microcosmos. In the foreseeable future, the new techniques will permit the motions of subatomic particles to be observed in far greater detail than has been possible

Record precision achieved in mass map of galaxy cluster

An international team of astronomers, has used the Hubble Space Telescope to map the mass within a galaxy cluster, originally discovered with Maunakea telescopes, more precisely than ever before.

Star Formation Region in the Orion Nebular investigated

On its first scientific mission the far-infrared spectrometer FIFI-LS developed by a team led by the University of Stuttgart has explored the prominent star-forming region of the Orion Nebula. The instrument was flown on board the airborne observatory known as SOFIA, a joint program of the

The source of the sky's X-ray glow

In findings that help astrophysicists understand our corner of the galaxy, an international research team has shown that the soft X-ray glow blanketing the sky comes from both inside and outside the solar system.

Time flies in new exoplanet video exploring beyond the boundaries of our solar system

PhD student Tom Hands from the University of Leicester produces video to demonstrate vast range of time-scales on which exoplanets orbit host stars

Radio-burst discovery deepens astrophysics mystery

The discovery of a split-second burst of radio waves by scientists using the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico provides important new evidence of mysterious pulses that appear to come from deep in outer space. The finding by an international team of astronomers, published

SHOCKWAVE FINDINGS SET TO REWRITE SCIENTIFIC THEORIES

Research from an international team of scientists led by the University of Leicester has discovered for the first time that one of the most powerful events in our universe – Gamma-Ray Bursts – behave differently than previously thought
