Attosecond Physics Focus of Upcoming Mini-Workshop

European scientists will be on campus Tuesday, April 2, to discuss the latest developments and future challenges of experimental and theoretical attosecond physics.

The mini-workshop, hosted by the Department of Physics, will explore the most current research using attosecond laser techniques to probe the ultrafast electron motion that underlies light-induced chemical reactions in molecular gases, liquids and at interfaces. Students and faculty interested in physics, chemistry and optics are encouraged to attend.

Invited speakers include Professor Hans Jakob Wörner ETH (Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule) Zürich, Professor Françoise Remacle (University of Liège), and Professor Fernando Martín (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid). In addition, UCF physics and optics faculty will give short presentations about their own capabilities in this new and exciting research area.

Workshop organizers aim to solidify UCF’s standing on the international scale as a hub for attosecond laser science, and to develop new partnerships with European scientists for research and graduate education.

Time: 9:30 AM- 2:30 PM

Place: Physical Sciences Building, Room 160/161
