OSA Ultrafast Optical Phenomena Technical Group Online Workshop - Day 3


OSA Ultrafast Optical Phenomena Technical Group Online Workshop - Day 3

Hosted By: Ultrafast Optical Phenomena Technical Group

27 May 2020, 11:00 - 14:00

Students and early career professionals are invited to join the OSA Ultrafast Optical Phenomena Technical Group for a week of online courses in this topic area. Each day will feature two presentations from researchers with ample time for questions and discussion. Day three included presentations by Ann L’Huillier, Lund University, and Dwayne Miller, University of Toronto.

Attosecond Pulses and Attosecond Spectroscopy presented by Ann L’Huillier, Lund University

Abstract: Prof. L'Huillier will give an orientation on the properties of attosecond sources created by high-order harmonic generation in gases, as well as on the utilization of these pulses in attosecond spectroscopy, giving new insights on the dynamics of photoionization.


Anne L’Huillier is a Swedish/French researcher in attosecond science. She defended her PhD thesis at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, in 1986. She was employed as researcher at Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique, in Saclay, France until 1995. She moved to Lund University, Sweden and became full professor in 1997. Her research is centered on high-order harmonic generation in gases. Currently, her research group works on attosecond source development and optimization as well as on applications, in particular concerning the measurement of photoionization dynamics in atomic systems.
