Position: Early Stage Researcher (PhD) in the framework of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Innovative Training Networks (ITN) H2020-MSCA-ITN-2014 MEDEA 641789
Institution: Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg, Germany
Duration: four years (from 01.01.2017)
Synthetic description of the project:
The project is focused on experiments to be performed at Free Electron Lasers (FELs), and, in particular at the FEL FERMI, that delivers tunable XUV pulses with a bandwidth between 30 and 90 meV. Coherent control schemes in the XUV spectral range exploiting the unique properties of the FEL FERMI will be investigated. In particular, the ESR will investigate how the combination of multi-color coherent XUV radiation can be used to control the photoionization process and electronic dynamics in inner valence shells of atoms and molecules. Finally, she/he will also investigate novel approaches for the generation of attosecond pulse trains using XUV FELs.
The work will be conducted in close collaboration with the atomic/molecular/ and optical physics group of the Elettra Sincrotrone led by Dr. Kevin Prince and Dr. Carlo Callegari.
