Second CORINF school/workshop

Wednesday 13 – Friday 15 November 2013.


The second CORINF school/workshop (whose first edition was in Dresden) will take place in Madrid just after the First Annual Workshop of the COST Action XLIC (11-13 November), in which several CORINF partners are involved.

The overall dates of the meeting will be Monday 11 – Friday 15 November, with XLIC events on Monday and Tuesday, an XLIC/CORINF common day on Wednesday 13 November, and CORINF events on Thursday and Friday.

The full programme can be downloaded here.

The CORINF part of the programme will include talks by scientists from each node, as well as presentations by each of the CORINF fellows.  There will also be opportunities for discussions on administrative and scientific business, as well as multilateral meetings between different CORINF nodes.

The registration form is available online here - - and participants are encouraged to register early.  Details about recommended accommodation will be available shortly.

Hosting node: MPIPKS

Training goals:

Introduce  participants from the inside and outside of the CORINF MC ITN network to strong field and attosecond science and the emerging field of imaging dynamics of single molecules with the combination of sub-femtosecond temporal and sub-Angstrom spatial resolution.

Emphasis is on the basic physical ideas of using intense infrared and or XUV/ X-ray light to gain insight into the structure and ultrafast dynamics of atoms, molecules and clusters, as well as the key theoretical tools and challenges in bringing these basic ideas to fruition.

Lecture topics:

  • Overview of strong field and attosecond science,
  • Imaging single molecule dynamics at sub-femtosecond timescale:
    • Approaches using intense infrared fields: basic ideas and challenges
      • High harmonic spectroscopy
      • Time resolved electron diffraction and holography
    • Approaches using X-ray radiation: basic ideas and challenges
  • Theoretical methods in strong-field and attosecond science,
    • Analytical approaches in strong-field physics
    • Numerical methods for single active electron
    • Numerical methods for multi-electron dynamics
    • Interfacing with quantum chemistry

Tutorial lectures and hands-on training exercises, where several groups work on specific problems, some of them still unsolved.

Invited lecturers:
V. Averbukh (London, UK), E. Charron (Paris, France), O. Kornilov (Berlin, Germany), J. Marangos (London, UK), S. Patchkovskii (Ottawa, Canada), U. Saalmann (Dresden, Germany), A. Saenz (Berlin, Germany), A. Scrinzi (München, Germany), O. Smirnova (Berlin, Germany), H. van der Hart (Belfast, Ireland)
