The radiation consists of a train of extremely short light bursts, in the attosecond range, allowing for outstanding temporal resolution. This presentation will give a short historical perspective on this field of research. The short pulse duration and broad bandwidth of attosecond pulses allow the characterization of the electron wave packets created by absorption of these pulses, using interferometric techniques. We will describe recent measurements of ultrashort temporal delays in photoionization and of the quantum state of the created electron wavepacket.   Bio: After a PhD at the University Pierre et Marie Curie in 1986, Anne L’Huillier became researcher at the Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique, Saclay, France. She moved to Lund University, Sweden in 1995 and became full professor in 1997. Her research has been centered around high-order harmonic generation in gases and its applications, in particular in attosecond science. Her current research deals with attosecond source development, characterization and optimization as well as with applications, e.g. the measurement of photoionization time delays in atomic systems. She has gotten several awards for her research, e.g. the 2011 L’Oréal-Unesco award for women in science and the 2022 Wolf prize in Physics. ------------------------------------ Below is the planned agenda for this event: 5 min: arrival, overview of X-Lites project  5 min: introducing speaker and topic  40 min:  science talk by Dr. Anne L’Huillier 10 min: Q&A  20 min: breakout to engage with speaker’s conversation prompts and provocative questions 10 min: sharing insights in plenary Reflection from the audience and responses from the speaker 30 min: optional: water cooler time    Watch the recorded talk here   Subscribe for Event Notifications X-lites Main Menu   https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMocOmurDkoG9JNY9Rg0yZJJ2i_ToOZB17D Institute for Optical Science spectroscopy@osu.edu America/New_York public
