Spectro-microscopy at Extreme Limits
Hanieh Fattahi, Head of Research Group, Femtosecond Fieldoscopy, Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light,

This talk is devoted to modern methods for attosecond and femtosecond laser spectroscopy, with a special focus on applications that require spatial resolution. In the first part, I discuss two of the long-standing challenges in attosecond spectroscopy: i) the required photon flux for XUV pump-XUV probe spectroscopy, and ii) the necessary ultra-high spatiotemporal resolution for resolving electron-dynamic in the matter. High harmonic generation by high-energy, high-power light transients holds promise to overcome both barriers. I demonstrate our effort in this direction and the first prototype field-synthesizer based on ytterbium, thin-disk laser technology

In the second part of my talk, I show the first proof of principle field-resolved detection of few-cycle pulses at PHz frequency and in ambient air and discuss the unique potential of the technique for molecular spectroscopy and imaging.
