Spring 2020 Online Workshop on Ultrafast Phenomena

Spring 2020 Online Workshop on Ultrafast Phenomena 

This is intensive online workshop will introduce fundamentals in nonlinear and ultrafast spectroscopy as applied to topics in condensed matter physics, chemistry, and biology. It will emphasize charge carrier and structural dynamics, discussing how the time scales for light-matter interactions, including energy absorption and dissipation processes, determine the overall physical properties of a material. This workshop is open to researchers at all levels and all disciplines.
