By Dietrich Papenfuß, Dieter Lüst, Wolfgang P. Schleich

Over forty popular scientists from everywhere in the global speak about the paintings and impression of Werner Heisenberg. The papers end result from the symposium held through the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung at the get together of the one hundredth anniversary of Heisenberg's beginning, probably the most very important physicists of the twentieth century and cofounder of modern day quantum mechanics. Taking atomic and laser physics as their start line, the scientists illustrate the influence of Heisenberg's theories on astroparticle physics, high-energy physics and string idea correct as much as processing quantum details.

Extreme Nonlinear Optics: An Introduction

Following the delivery of the laser in 1960, the sector of "nonlinear optics" speedily emerged. this day, laser intensities and pulse periods are on hand, for which the recommendations and approximations of conventional nonlinear optics not follow. during this regime of "extreme nonlinear optics," a wide number of novel and weird results come up, for instance frequency doubling in inversion symmetric fabrics or high-harmonic new release in gases, which may end up in attosecond electromagnetic pulses or pulse trains.

As regards Heisenberg-Einstein dialogue, three important questions can be raised. The first question is which particular aspect of physical theory were they both concerned with. The second question is whether there emerged from their dialogue some general principle, as a guiding principle of sufficient methodological interest, on which they both showed significant agreement, resolving some of their methodological differences by removing some of their shared philosophical misunderstandings concerning physical theory.

For Heisenberg the most important point was the talent and nature of the person, irrespective of nationality, sex, race, religion, credo etc. So, for example, in the Nazi era in Leipzig, he adopted Hans Euler as his assistant, a firm and known communist. It was of course dangerous for Heisenberg himself, but Heisenberg wanted to save this gifted young and financially poor Euler. In the beginning of World War II the attack of Soviet against Finland and Poland acted on Euler grave influence, who lost his confidence and became a volunteer and a pilot of a reconnaissance plane and died in Soviet front.
