Probing atomic or molecular systems with ultrashort and near-optical lasers remains a tremendous challenge while their understanding exerts a significant impact on science and industry by enabling a series of cutting-edge techniques: the production of lasers with ever shorter wavelengths by high harmonic generation, analysis by laser induced electron diffraction, and orbital tomography, to quote just a few applications. This new field of physics and engineering, "attosecond science", investigates the motion of electrons on their own time scale.
The objective of the Marie Curie IRSES TranS-MI network is to investigate the nonlinear dynamics of these atomic and molecular systems. We intend to transport tools from chemical physics like transition state theory to atomic processes involving strong electron-electron correlations as encountered in strong field physics. The network aims to link mathematicians, physicists and chemists to build a unified theoretical framework to tackle this complex dynamics in laser-matter interaction.
The Marie Curie IRSES TranS-MI network is coordinated by the Center for Theoretical Physics (CNRS) in Marseille (France) and involves the Department of Mathematical Sciences of Loughborough University (UK), the Group of Complex Systems of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (Spain), as well as the School of Physics and the School of Chemistry at the Georgia Institute of Technology (USA).
