Interests: ultrafast light-matter interaction; electron correlations in atoms and solids; condensed matter electron dynamics; attosecond spectroscopy; few-cycle laser pulses; nonlinear optics; high-harmonic generation; XUV absorption and photoelectron spectroscopy
After attosecond soft-X-ray pulses were first demonstrated, 15 years ago, today their routine availability in many laboratories around the world propels time-resolved spectroscopy in a wide range of atomic, molecular, and condensed matter systems. Now, we can put standard assumptions of light–matter interaction to the test and explore the dynamic aspects of the underlying physics.
This Special Issue on “Extreme Time Scale Photonics" shall provide a forum for recent developments in the field, and invites contributions—both experimental and theoretical—on studies of ultrafast phenomena and tools and methods to perform them. Specifically encouraged are submissions in the areas of:
- Ultrafast electron dynamics
- High-harmonic generation in atoms, molecules and solids
- Electronic correlations
- Sub-cycle dynamics in ultrafast electric fields
- Light-matter interaction at Petahertz frequencies
- Tools for attosecond spectroscopy and novel sources
- Attosecond pulse generation with lasers and free electron lasers (FEL)
- Ultrafast time resolved photoelectron and photon spectroscopy
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
