Congratulations to CTAMOP post-doc Jack Wragg and colleagues on the publication of a landmark paper in Physical Review Letters.

The research is the fruit of the EPSRC funded ARMouReD project: (Atomic R-Matrix for Relativistic Dynamics), and details the first application of the relativistic time-dependent R-matrix (RMT) code to describe ultrafast spin-orbit dynamics. The paper is the first exploration of how the spin-orbit effect might be measured in time-resolved experiment, and showcases the capability of the RMT code for describing laser-atom interactions in unrivalled detail.

Well done to Jack and co-authors:  Daniel Clarke, Greg Armstrong, Andrew Brown Connor Ballance, and Hugo van der Hart.
