New computational methods for attosecond molecular processes

29mayAll Day02junNew computational methods for attosecond molecular processesCOST/ZCAM Training school

Event Details

The purpose of this school is to introduce state-of-the-art ab-initio and hybrid numerical methods that can cope with ultra-fast dynamics in the electronic continuum of molecules, with an emphasis on unbound states in strong-fields and on the need to go beyond single-active-electron models to properly account for electron correlation. The school will be organized in 5 theoretical sessions and 5 practical sessions in the computer lab. The speakers participating in this training will be: Jesús González-Vázquez (Autonomous University of Madrid-UAM), Stefanos Carlstrom (Max Born Institute -MBI, Berlin), Mikhail Ivanov (MBI, Berlin), Fernando Martín (UAM), Felipe Morales (MBI, Berlin), Alicia Palacios (UAM), Serguei Patchkovskii (MBI, Berlin), Armin Scrinzi (Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich), and Olga Smirnova (MBI, Berlin). A detailed program can be donwloaded here.

It is directed to advanced PhD students and post-doctoral researchers in theoretical atomic and molecular physics, theoretical chemistry, quantum optics and applied mathematics, with an interest in using and developing new computational tools for the description of attosecond electron dynamics in systems of chemical interest.

Registration for this event is free. Due to space limitations, the number of accepted attendants is limited, so reserve your place as soon as possible. Registration deadline: 24 March 2023. See:
You will receive confirmation of acceptance/non-acceptance for attendance within the next week after registration closes.

AttoChem participants might request support to partially cover their attendance to the school, explicitly indicating “financial support requested” in the registration form. Participants will be informed about eligibility and reimbursement conditions once the registration is closed. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us (

This school is co-organised by the COST Action AttoChem (CA18222) and ZCAM, at ZCAM premises. It is provided as the Advanced School in the series involving two consecutive schools: the ZCAM school on “Ultrafast phenomena in Chemistry: Laser-matter interactions at the femto- and atto-second time scales” (May 22-26, 2023) and the present school (May 29-June 2, 2023). PhD students or young post-docs can benefit from this series.
