UNL physicist discusses high-order harmonic generation at AAAS
One-billionth of a billionth of a second. That's the scale -- an attosecond -- at which scientists seek to image and control electronic motion in matter. The principle of attosecond s…
Study examines how uncertainty can affect political tolerance
It's a safe bet that in the course of perusing the news on a daily basis, you are confronted with political messages that differ from your own beliefs. But how open are you to those viewpoints? Are you in a frame of mind that allow…
