"Single-cycle light: from THz to X-rays"

Who: Vitaliy Goryashko, Ångström Laboratory, Uppsala University, Sweden

Place: nanoGUNE seminar room, Tolosa Hiribidea 76, Donostia - San Sebastian

Date: Tuesday, 24 May 2016, 11:00

Nanooptics seminar, open for everyone.

Few-cycle strong-field light enables engineering of new dynamic states of matter such as THz light-induced superconductivity, metal-insulator transitions and controlled surface chemistry. Few-cycle pulses are also of importance for probing matter such as studying the quantum world on the attosecond scale using single-cycle pulses of X-rays. In this talk we discuss a novel concept of single-cycle free-electron lasing and give examples of applications of such extreme light in physics, chemistry and biology.
