For more than ten years, we and other research groups worldwide have been working on strong-field physics on solids - which until now could only ever be observed on nanometre-sharp needle tips. In terms of the driving optical wavelength, these tips are zero-dimensional objects. We wondered if we cou...

Dr. Klaas-Jan Tielrooij has published a highly interesting commentary on our light-fast logic gate paper. In his article for Nature Materials, he discusses insights worth reading about the fundamentals of ultrafast processes, but also comments on how our light-field-based logic gate might enter opto...
