 Project objective

Femtosecond laser pulses can be exploited to trace the ultrafast motion of electrons (“attosecond physics”) and study the properties of molecules, and the changes they undergo, on the atomic scale (“femtochemistry”). Suitable tailoring of the laser fields even allows for controlling the electron and nuclear dynamics within molecules and thereby steer chemical reactions towards a desired outcome (“coherent control”). Despite a wide range of perspective applications in fundamental science and industry, our capabilities to exert control on chemical reactions, and our understanding thereof, have been very limited. In the proposed work, I will develop and employ a novel experimental technique, which will allow (a) controlling light-induced chemical reactions in a wide range of molecular species efficiently, and (b) imaging the electron and nuclear dynamics underlying such reactions on their natural timescales. My work will go significantly beyond the state-of-the-art and thus contribute to the development of coherent control and our microscopic understanding of photochemical reactions. The advancements become possible by combining the latest laser technology with the expertise of all participants. The proposed MSCA will complement my scientific skills, both experimental and theoretical, and will provide me with required transferable skills to reach my long-term goal of establishing my own research group in Europe. The new scientific development will contribute to consolidating the European Leadership in the field of Attosecond Physics.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "ATTOCHEM" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
