Creating stable Floquet–Weyl semimetals by laser-driving of 3D Dirac materials
ddc:500
Tuning and stabilizing topological states, such as Weyl semimetals, Dirac semimetals or topological insulators, is emerging as one of the major topics in materials science. Periodic driving of many-body systems offers a platform to design Floquet states of matter with tunable electronic properties on ultrafast timescales. [...]

Simultaneous control of magnetic topologies for reconfigurable vortex arrays
ddc:500
The topological spin textures in magnetic vortices in confined magnetic elements offer a platform for understanding the fundamental physics of nanoscale spin behavior and the potential of harnessing their unique spin structures for advanced magnetic technologies. For magnetic vortices to be practical, an effective reconfigurability of the two topologies of magnetic vortices, that is, the circularity and the polarity, is an essential prerequisite. [...]

Multiple Supersonic Phase Fronts Launched at a Complex-Oxide Heterointerface
ddc:550
Selective optical excitation of a substrate lattice can drive phase changes across heterointerfaces. This phenomenon is a nonequilibrium analogue of static strain control in heterostructures and may lead to new applications in optically controlled phase change devices [...]

Single-shot diffraction data from the Mimivirus particle using an X-ray free-electron laser
ddc:610
Free-electron lasers (FEL) hold the potential to revolutionize structural biology by producing X-ray pules short enough to outrun radiation damage, thus allowing imaging of biological samples without the limitation from radiation damage. Thus, a major part of the scientific case for the first FELs was three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of non-crystalline biological objects. [...]

High-Field High-Repetition-Rate Sources for the Coherent THz Control of Matter
ddc:000
Ultrashort flashes of THz light with low photon energies of a few meV, but strong electric or magneticfield transients have recently been employed to prepare various fascinating nonequilibrium statesin matter. Here we present a new class of sources based on superradiant enhancement of radiationfrom relativistic electron bunches in a compact electron accelerator that we believe will revolutionizeexperiments in this field.

Coupled Motion of Xe Clusters and Quantum Vortices in He Nanodroplets
ddc:530
Single He nanodroplets doped with Xe atoms are studied via ultrafast coherent x-ray diffraction imaging. The diffraction images show that rotating He nanodroplets about 200 nm in diameter contain a small number of symmetrically arranged quantum vortices decorated with Xe clusters. [...]

Stimulated x-ray Raman Scattering – a critical assessment of the building block of nonlinear x-ray spectroscopy
ddc:540
With the invention of femtosecond X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs), studies of light-induced chemical reaction dynamics and structural dynamics reach a new era, allowing for time-resolved X-ray diffraction and spectroscopy. To ultimately probe coherent electron and nuclear dynamics on their natural time and length scales, coherent nonlinear X-ray spectroscopy schemes have been proposed. [...]

Synchronised photoreversion of spirooxazine ring opening in thin crystals to uncover ultrafast dynamics.

ddc:540
Reversibility is an important issue that prevents ultrafast studies of chemical reactions in solid state due to product accumulation. Here we present an approach that makes use of spectrally-selected, post-excitation, ultrashort laser pulses to minimise photoproduct build-up, i.e. [...]

Parametric amplification of a superconducting plasma wave

ddc:530
Many applications in photonics require all-optical manipulation of plasma waves1, which can concentrate electromagnetic energy on sub-wavelength length scales. This is difficult in metallic plasmas because of their small optical nonlinearities. [...]

Semiconductor saturable absorbers for ultrafast terahertz signals
ddc:530
We demonstrate saturable absorber behavior of n-type semiconductors GaAs, GaP, and Ge in theterahertz (THz) frequency range at room temperature using nonlinear THz spectroscopy. Thesaturation mechanism is based on a decrease in electron conductivity of semiconductors at highelectron momentum states, due to conduction band nonparabolicity and scattering into satellitevalleys in strong THz fields.
