JRA4 Research addresses the 10-12s time resolution frontier of nanoscience. Bonding-rebonding and collective properties (electronic, magnetic) of nanostructures and nanostructured matter (fs-scale) will be studied on the relevant time scale and prepare further experiments with the soft and hard X-ray ultrashort pulse sources under construction: Free Electron Lasers (FERMI@Elettra, EU-XFEL, SwissFEL) as well asadvanced laser facilities (table top beamlines, ELI-ALPS). Among the objectives are integrated pump-probe experiments for nanoscience and theory tools for real-time analysis.
Prepare the move towards systematic time-resolved experimental and theoretical analysis for nanoscale systems with fs-range pulsed radiation from table top UV and soft X-sources preparing access to novel free electron laser laboratories (FERMI) and forthcoming X-ray FEL laboratories in Europe (EU-XFEL, SwissFEL).
