X-Ray Light Makes Clear Atomic Nuclei
At the high-brilliance synchrotron light source PETRA III, a team of Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) scientists headed by Ralf Röhlsberger has succeeded in making atomic nuclei transparent with the help of X-ray light. At the same time they have also discovered a new way to realize an optically controlled light switch that can be used to manipulate light with light, an important ingredient for efficient future quantum computers. The research results are presented in the current edition of the scientific journal Nature.
