Quantum Dynamics in Tailored Intense Fields

International Focus Workshop
with Annual Meeting of the DFG
Priority Programme QUTIF
27 February - 1 March 2017


Quantum systems in the presence of strong controlled light constitute the central theme of this workshop. With controlled fields, processes such as chemical reactions or electron emission can be influenced and information about the microscopic world can be gained.

The workshop includes presentations from the DFG Priority Programme QUTIF as well as invited talks by external experts.

Topics include

  • Intense-laser-matter interactions
  • Quantum dynamics of atoms, molecules,
    solids, clusters and nanostructures
  • High-harmonic generation and attosecond
  • Coherent control of ionization,
    fragmentation and chemical reactions
  • Pulse-shaping techniques for tailored light
  • Charge migration
  • Interaction of chiral molecules with laser
  • Numerical methods
