AttoChem school on “New Computational Methods for Attosecond Molecular Processes”

Date Mo, 22.03.2021 - Fr, 26.03.2021
Time all day
Location Online
Program Registration to the ZCAM-COST AttoChem school on “New Computational Methods for Attosecond Molecular Processes” that will take place from 22 to 26 March 2021 is now open at Registration is free until 28 February 2021. Due to the pandemic, the school will be entirely online. Please notice that we can only accept a limited number of participants for the training sessions, so reserve your place as soon as possible.

The purpose of this school is to introduce state-of-the-art ab-initio, hybrid and TDDFT numerical methods that can cope with ultra-fast dynamics in the electronic continuum of molecules, with an emphasis on unbound states in strong-fields and on the need to go beyond single-active-electron models to properly account for electron correlation. The course is directed to advanced master students, PhD students and young post-doctoral researchers in theoretical atomic and molecular physics, theoretical chemistry, quantum optics and applied mathematics, with an interest in using and developing new computational tools for the description of attosecond electron dynamics in systems of chemical interest.

The school will be organized in 5 theoretical sessions and 5 practical sessions. The teachers participating in this training will be: Alberto Castro (BIFI, Zaragoza), Jesús González-Vázquez (Autonomous University of Madrid), Mikhail Ivanov (Max Born Institute, Berlin), Fernando Martín (Autonomous University of Madrid), Felipe Morales (Max Born Institute, Berlin), Alicia Palacios (Autonomous University of Madrid), Serguei Patchkovskii (Max Born Institute, Berlin), Armin Scrinzi (Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich), and Olga Smirnova (Max Born Institute, Berlin). The detailed program can be found at the CECAM website
