Carlos Hernández-García is a senior researcher at the University of Salamanca, Spain. He received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Salamanca in 2013. He worked for two years as a research associate at JILA, University of Colorado at Boulder. He is principal investigator of the ERC Starting Grant ATTOSTRUCTURA. His fields of research cover laser-matter interaction, ultrafast phenomena, high-order harmonic generation and propagation, attosecond and zeptosecond physics, the generation of structured light with tailored spin and orbital angular momentum properties in the extreme-ultraviolet and x-ray regimes, and ultrafast magnetism.


Switching the Twist in X Rays with Magnets

Scientists create a pattern of nanomagnets—called an artificial spin ice—that can control the orbital angular momentum of a scattered x-ray beam. Read More »
