ICFO Schools on the Frontiers of Light: Attosecond science and extreme photonics

Date Mo, 08.07.2019 - Mi, 10.07.2019
Location ICFO, Barcelona, Spain
Program The next ICFO School on the Frontiers of Light will take place from 8-10 July 2019 on Attosecond science and extreme photonics.

Attosecond pulses access the natural time scale of electronic motion, thus provide a first tool to study the dynamic behaviour of the quantum world. Not surprisingly, since the inception of attosecond pulse generation nearly two decades ago, the field has seen exponential growth and spectacular progress was made in studying the dynamics of atoms, molecules and solids. Presently, we are witnessing an amazing convergence of attosecond physics, ultrafast x-ray science and xray free-electron laser research to address fundamental problems across physics, chemistry and material science with revolutionary new tools and methodologies. Thus, the tremendous prospects and growth in these areas require the training of young scientists who will further advance these fields. The lectures of the ICFO School on Frontiers of Light will be held by renowned experts and pioneers of atomic and molecular physics, attosecond science, chemistry and solid state physics, who will cover the fundamentals as well as the cutting edge in both theory and experiment. Lectures and discussions will range from molecular imaging to high harmonic spectroscopy in solid state and to superconductivity.

The school will include 4 days of lectures from 8-10 July.
