Femtochemistry – some reflections and perspectives

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


In this perspective we highlight some aspects of femtochemistry, that is, the creation, detection and control of non-stationary states in chemical dynamics. Some recent results are discussed with a view on the challenges and pending scientific questions. We discuss theoretical as well as experimental issues with the emphasis on laser control of chemical dynamics, in the weak-field and strong-field regimes.
