Atomic Physics 2019 - Focus: Ultrafast chirality and topology of light and matter

18th November 2019   -   22nd November 2019
Dresden, Germany


One can think of chirality or topology as properties introducing an additional degree of freedom of geometrical origin, such as handedness or topological invariant. Does this extra degree of freedom lead to new properties of optical response in ultrafast and non-linear domain? The focus of this year-s Atomic Physics workshop is on the role of chirality and topology in non-linear and ultrafast light-matter interaction. The topics will include shaping chiral and topological properties of light and using this tailored light to shape and probe chiral and topological properties of matter. The workshop will take place this year from Tuesday noon to Friday noon. As in the past years a fraction of the slots are devoted to presentations about topics of general interest in atomic physics.
