Imaging and controlling correlated electron dynamics in molecules.

Our goals

  • Time- and space-resolved imaging and control of charge migration, electron rearrangement, autoionization, coupling of the electronic and vibrational motions in molecules.
  • Understand the role of attosecond coherent electron dynamics in chemical reactivity
  • Scientific highlights

  • Probing molecular chirality on a sub-femtosecond timescale [see 1,2,3]
  • Ascertaining tunneling time [see 1,2,3].
  • Multielectron attoclock [see 1].
  • Electrons produced by strong-field ionization are spin-polarized [see 1].
  • Bound states of a free electron: The role of the Kramers-Henneberger atom in the higher-order Kerr effect [see 1].
  • Analytical R-matrix theory is a new tool to study strong field dynamics [see 1, 2,3, 4 and 5 ].
  • Time reconstruction of harmonic emission in molecules near the ionization threshold [see 1].
  • You can find us here.
