On the light catapult: Jan-Christoph Deinert adjusts the blue laser that researchers at the Fritz Haber Institute use to hurl electrons from a copper plate into a thin amorphous layer of ice serving as a model for liquid water. In their experiments, they are investigating how the electron is solvated in it. © Clemens Richter / Fritz Haber Institute
