The Hamburg Centre for Ultrafast Imaging (CUI)

The world is not static. This simple perception directly leads to one of the greatest and most exciting challenges of contemporary science: observing the movement of the elementary building blocks of nature.

Atoms, molecules and electrons move, form bonds between each other and break apart unimaginably fast. Scientists at The Hamburg Centre for Ultrafast Imaging (CUI) want to observe and understand these ultrafast processes directly on the atomic level of detail, so that maybe, one day, they will even be able to control them systematically.

Ultrafast processes in slow motion

Since this undertaking will require the expertise of many disciplines, scientist from Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Medicine have joined forces under the umbrella of the CUI cluster of excellence to study fundamental processes in the field of Photon and Nano Science and thus realising the dream experiment of watching atoms live in action. Additional important features are the promotion of junior researchers as well as a clear focus on gender and families.
