Attosecond Physics and Electron Dynamics

Theoretical modeling of electronic excitations and time-resolved spectroscopies in atoms, molecules, and solids

Q2 Attosecond physics

This research line focuses on the theoretical description of electronic excitations and time-resolved spectroscopies in atoms, molecules, and solids, with particular emphasis on phenomena appearing in the attosecond time scale. For this purpose, first-principles calculations are primarily used.

Specific topics

  • Photoemission-based spectroscopies in condensed matter.
  • Ab-initio one-step theory of photoemission.
  • Interaction of free-electron-laser pulses with matter.
  • Time-dependent electron phenomena in low-dimensional systems.
