Prof. Fernando Martín (IMDEA Nanociencia, IFIMAC and UAM) will open the 2017/2018 CNB Seminar Series with a talk entitled: Attosecond science: the superslow-motion camera of physics, chemistry and … biology?
The XXII CNB Seminar Series includes 20 speakers considered of international reference in different areas of research in Life Science. More details here: http://www.cnb.csic.es/index.php/en/science-society/news/item/1446-ciclo-de-seminarios-del-cnb-curso-2017-2018
Outline of the talk on September 29: The advent of attosecond laser pulses has opened new avenues for imaging and controlling electronic and nuclear motions in molecules, with exciting potential applications in physics, chemistry and, as suggested very recently, biology. Processes such as ionization damage, ultrafast charge migration, electron and proton transfer, or isomerization in molecules and biomolecules can now be monitored in their natural time scale. Such progress would not have been possible without the help of theoretical modeling. In this talk, the history of this joint venture and its future implications will be discussed.
