Conference Summary

Ultra-Short and Intense Laser pulses offer the means to observe, control and probe multi-electron effects during ionization and break-up of strongly-driven atoms and molecules. Moreover, Free Electron Laser facilities is a route to delivering XUV and X-ray pulses with intensities orders of magnitude larger than those provided by conventional synchrotron radiation sources.

Ultra-fast and intense X-ray pulses open-up new horizons for probing and controlling the attosecond motion of inner-shell electrons in multi-photon multi-ionization processes.

This conference aims to bring together theorists from the FEL and Attosecond-Strong Field Science communities to discuss and present recent advances in theoretical techniques developed to tackle multi-electron effects in ionization of atoms and molecules.

Another goal of this meeting is to draw together theorists and experimentalists in order to identify the most interesting challenges that both communities will face in the future.

    "Science with X-ray Pulses – New frontiers in exploring the science of matter at the microscopic scale"

    Abstract: The new sources of ultrafast X-rays: X-ray free electron lasers and high harmonic generation from intense optical lasers, will be introduced. These can both generate X-ray pulses as short as 10^-15 second (1 thousandths of a millionth of a millionth of a second!) and so enable us to study the very fastest events in nature that involve the rearrangement of electrons in matter. I will explain how this is leading to new insights into chemical reaction dynamics and  ultrafast electronics.

    Accommodation Details

    There are two main options for accommodation:

    - staying in a local hotel (Information on local hotels close to UCL)
    - staying in a student hall (Information on student halls)

    Note that the student halls closer to UCL are the Carr-Saunders hall, the Passfield Hall and, a bit further away, the Rosebery Hall.

    You can also find a list of recommended hotels here.

    Please book your accommodation early since summer is a very busy time in London.
