PhD and Postdoc Position in Attosecond Science, University Freiburg, Germany

1 PhD position and 1 Postdoc position

Topic: Investigation of correlated electronic dynamics by nonlinear attosecond spectroscopy

In the framework of the project NONLINEARATTO, a PhD position (three years) and a Postdoc position (one year+one year) are available in the field of attosecond science at the Albert-Ludwigs-University of Freiburg.

The main goal of the project is the investigation of the role of electronic correlation in the dynamics of fundamental systems, such as helium and molecular hydrogen by nonlinear extreme ultraviolet spectroscopy. The experiments will be based on the pump-probe scheme, exploiting high-intensity extreme ultraviolet attosecond pulses generated by high-order harmonic generation. Information about the electronic dynamics will be gained by measuring in coincidence the photoelectron(s) and photoion(s) generated by the interaction of the attosecond pulses with the system.

The experiments will be realized at the laser facility ELI-ALPS (Extreme Light Infrastructure Attosecond Light Pulse Source) in Hungary (
