Attosecond physics: observing electrons with a magnifying glass

The 2023 Nobel Prize in Physics honored experiments capable of producing extremely short flashes of light, of the order of a billionth of a billionth of a second. These attosecond flashes can now be used to "see" the movement of electrons. The Laboratoire d'optique appliquée (Applied Optics Laboratory LOA*) has played a major role in the development of these techniques, and is continuing research in this field today. Focus on this science of the ultrafast and the infinitely small.

Live 3D printing of metallic alloys probed with synchrotron light

Researchers from the Solid Mechanics Laboratory of Institut Polytechnique de Paris, along with collaborators from the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) in Germany and the Technical University of Denmark have performed a decisive experiment showing that dislocations (crystalline defects) in 3D printed metallic alloys continue to evolve after their formation during the fabrication process. Since dislocations play a major role in the mechanics of materials, these results are the first step towards tailoring the properties of alloys during 3D printing.

A bacterial origin for the DNA of eukaryotes?

In an article published in the journal Nature Communication, scientists have made a surprising suggestion that gene transfer from bacteria to eukaryotes occurs. This discovery is based on the study of thymidylate synthase, an enzyme required for de novo DNA synthesis. These observations have provided new insight into the evolution of DNA by suggesting that the metabolic capacity of present-day eukaryotes to synthesise DNA may also have originated in bacteria and not only in archaea as previously thought.
