Description
Attoseconds (10^(-18) sec) are the natural time-scale for multi-electron effects during complete ionization and break-up of multi-electron atoms and molecules. The recent advances in generating ultrashort laser pulses raise the possibility to investigate atomic, molecular, and nuclear physics at this new time-scale, bringing a revolution in our microscopic knowledge and understanding of matter. Two fascinating and complementary challenges of Attoscience are to identify the physical mechanisms underlying the correlated multi-electron dynamics--of fundamental interest to, for instance, molecular imaging--in atomic and molecular systems and to devise schemes to pro...
