On Monday, November 27, at 11.00 AM, Jerzy Pniewski and Leopold Infeld Colloquium of the Faculty of Physics will be held in room 0.06. The lecture entitled "The 2023 Nobel Prize in Physics" will be delivered jointly by dr. hab. Katarzyna Krajewska, prof. UW and dr. hab. Piotr Wasylczyk, prof. UW. Both speakers are affiliated with the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw. The lecture will focus on this year's Nobel Prize in Physics. We will learn about the context and content of research on ultrashort pulses of light, the importance of which was recognized by the Nobel Committee.

The 2023 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Pierre Agostini, Anne L’Huillier, and Ferenc Krausz for their groundbreaking research leading to the development of experimental methods for generating attosecond pulses of light. These unprecedentedly short bursts of electromagnetic fields have become the foundation of new spectroscopic techniques with the highest temporal resolution and enabled scientists to take snapshots of electron dynamics in matter. In this lecture, we will describe the experimental methods behind the creation and metrology of such pulses and present examples of using attosecond techniques to capture ultrafast processes in atoms, molecules, and solids.
