A newly opened postdoc position in Attosecond Physics is available in the Division of Atomic Physics at the Faculty of Engineering, Lund University.
Specific subject description
Time-resolved studies of atoms and molecules using ultrashort intense laser pulses in the extreme ultraviolet and X-ray regions.
The work within this position will be performed at the Lund High power laser facility and to some extent at national and international user facilities, mainly involving experimental work. The project may include the following tasks:
• To use and develop a high power femtosecond laser for the generation and optimization of intense high-order harmonics and attosecond pulses
• Application of these intense harmonics to attosecond time-resolution studies of atoms and molecules using an imaging ion and electron spectrometer
• Development of these experiments for attosecond applications to molecules of biological interest
The postdoctoral fellow is expected to interact with the master students and the PhD-students in the research group and contribute to meetings and seminars. Teaching might also be part of the job.
