Short description

The Summer School (26-30 August 2024, ETH Zurich and EPFL campuses) aims to bring students and professors together to discuss some fundamental topics of ultrafast science. Distinguished professors will present the results of their research, with a particular focus on the experimental techniques that enable the measurement of the dynamics of materials and molecules with sub-nm and sub-fs resolution. The lectures will be complemented by laboratory visits at ETHZ and EPFL, featuring practical demonstrations on state-of-the-art instrumentation. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to present their own research through a poster session and engage in stimulating discussions during the social events.


Amongst others, the topics will include ultrafast laser physics, transient absorption spectroscopy, ultrafast tunnelling electron microscopy, ultrafast dynamics of strongly correlated materials, two-dimensional electron spectroscopy, time-resolved cathodoluminescence spectroscopy and time and angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy. The detailed list of topics can be found under the speakers page.
