m-chiniAssistant Professor in the UCF Department of Physics Michael Chini, Ph.D., wrote a “News and Views” article for the academic journal “Nature” published on October 20, 2016.

In his News and Views article, Chini highlights research on ultrafast electron dynamics in solid-state materials which was performed by researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics. Chini said that the purpose of the article is emphasize the work done by the researchers and to discuss what their results mean for the future. The format of the article is intended to be informal and to speak to readers plainly.

The research article that Chini wrote about is a study named “Multi-Petahertz Electronic Metrology,” which was also published in the Oct. 20 issue of “Nature.” The research describes measurements of microscopic electronic currents driven by ultrashort laser pulses. Chini looked at it in the context of other recently published studies.

Chini said that the research may eventually lead to faster circuitry in common electronic devices.
