Attoseconds and the Quantum Stroboscope

What were you doing today?

Oh, performing basic research in a very exciting field at the border between atomic and molecular physics and advanced optics, nonlinear optics and laser physics: high-order harmonic generation in gaseous media exposed to intense laser fields and its applications.

Anything interesting lately?

Yeh, we made the world’s first movie of an electron.
