Scientists at Atomic Physics are pursuing research on the properties of atoms and molecules, mainly using advanced laser techniques. Lasers with outputs of the order of terawatts (1012 or a million million watts) are used to study how material and light interact at extremely high laser intensities. Areas of application can be found in medicine, IT and the environment. For example, methods are being developed for the early diagnosis and treatment of cancer, new methods for optical data processing are being investigated, and air pollution is being measured with laser-radar techniques.
