4th International Conference on Ultrafast Structural Dynamics – ICUSD (co-organized by LACUS)

Date Di, 05.12.2017 - Do, 07.12.2017
Time All day
Location Adriatico Guesthouse in Grignano, Trieste
Program This meeting is a follow up to the conferences held at the ETH-Zurich in 2015, at the Laser Optics Berlin in 2012 and at the EPF-Lausanne in 2010.

ICUSD is a platform for discussing the latest methodological, theoretical and scientific developments aimed at understanding real-time structural changes in materials science, chemistry and biology. While these various communities have their scientific rationale, they share a variety of techniques including

Ultrafast EUV and x-ray diffraction, scattering and spectroscopy
Ultrafast multidimensional vibrational and electronic spectroscopies
Ultrafast electron diffraction, scattering and microscopy

which all aim at visualizing the dynamics of assemblies of atoms at the atomic-scale resolutions of space (the sub-Å) and time (the femtosecond). The conference aims at building bridges to better connect these communities and to foster the exchange of information and expertise.
