Physics Colloquium: Attosecond Interferometry
Nirit Dudovich, Weizmann Institute of Science
Attosecond science is a young field of research that has rapidly evolved over the past decade. The progress in this field opened a door into a new area of research that allows one to observe multi-electron dynamics in atoms, molecules and solids. One of the most important aspect of attosecond spectroscopy lies in its coherent nature. Resolving the internal coherence is a primary challenge in this field, serving as a key step in our ability to reconstruct the internal dynamics. As in many other branches in physics, coherence is resolved via interferometry. In this talk, I will describe advanced schemes for attosecond interferometry. The application of these schemes provides direct insights into a range of fundamental phenomena in nature, from tunneling and photoionization in atomic systems to ultrafast chiral phenomena in molecules.
