European Cinema: Face to Face with Hollywood
In the face of renewed competition from Hollywood since the early 1980s and the challenges posed to Europe's national cinemas by the fall of the Wall in 1989, independent filmmaking in Europe hasExpand

Grating-coupling of surface plasmons onto metallic tips: a nanoconfined light source.
We describe and demonstrate a new nanometer-scale broadband light source. It is based on the grating-coupled excitation of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) on the shaft of a sharp conical metalExpand

Ultrafast memory loss and energy redistribution in the hydrogen bond network of liquid H2O
Many of the unusual properties of liquid water are attributed to its unique structure, comprised of a random and fluctuating three-dimensional network of hydrogen bonds that link the highly polarExpand

Water Dynamics in the Hydration Shells of Biomolecules
The structure and function of biomolecules are strongly influenced by their hydration shells. Structural fluctuations and molecular excitations of hydrating water molecules cover a broad range inExpand

Ultrafast carrier dynamics in graphite.
Optical pump-probe spectroscopy with 7-fs pump pulses and a probe spectrum wider than 0.7 eV reveals the ultrafast carrier dynamics in freestanding thin graphite films. We discern for the first timeExpand

Ultrafast nonequilibrium carrier dynamics in a single graphene layer
Nonequilibrium carrier dynamics in single exfoliated graphene layers on muscovite substrates are studied by ultrafast optical pump-probe spectroscopy and compared with microscopic theory. The veryExpand

GENERATION OF MULTIPLE PHASE-LOCKED STOKES AND ANTI-STOKES COMPONENTS IN AN IMPULSIVELY EXCITED RAMAN MEDIUM
We report on the observation of a highly efficient transformation of laser radiation into higher-order Stokes and anti-Stokes components in impulsively vibrationally excited gaseous SF 6. TheExpand

Ultrafast structural dynamics of water induced by dissipation of vibrational energy.
In the liquid phase, water molecules form a disordered fluctuating network of intermolecular hydrogen bonds. Using both inter- and intramolecular vibrations as structural probes in ultrafast infraredExpand

Coherent Atomic Motions in a Nanostructure Studied by Femtosecond X-ray Diffraction
Reversible structural changes of a nanostructure were measured nondestructively with subpicometer spatial and subpicosecond temporal resolution via x-ray diffraction (XRD). The spatially periodicExpand
