Here is a short abstract for the talk.

“X-rays provide a unique spectroscopic view of molecules and materials, from an element-specific and orbital-selective frame of reference. Femtosecond and attosecond X-ray and extreme ultraviolet pulses (XUV) are used to probe curve crossings and conical intersections in molecules, electron and hole carriers in solids, charges transported across junctions, and coherent phonon motions, revealing breathtaking ‘movies’ of novel, ultrashort dynamical processes.”

About the speaker: Professor Stephen Leone is the John R. Thomas Endowed Chair in Physical Chemistry, Professor of Chemistry and Physics at the University of California, Berkeley, and faculty investigator, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. His research interests are ultrafast and attosecond laser investigations of atomic, molecular, and solid state dynamics.
