Some Like it Hot: Simulating Single Particle ExcitationsExternal link

Researchers with Berkeley Lab used a real-time numerical algorithm to study electron movement, to understand how long a particle stays excited, and whether there is energy backflow from hot carrier – a single particle excitation - to plasmon – a cloud of electrons. Read MoreExternal linkage
