The aim of this Nordita program is to study quantum control and dynamics of few-particle systems in an active collaborative effort between experimentalists and theorists, as well as between recognized senior researchers and young investigators. The activity is motivated by recent advances in the physics of ultrafast phenomena in the femto- and attosecond time scale -- a regime within reach of novel light sources. New insights into fundamental many-body physics are expected when ultrafast atomic and solid-state processes can be monitored in real time.

The topics of the program include, e.g., new light sources such as free-electron lasers and their capabilities, theory and computation of few-particle dynamics, quantum optimal control theory, and interaction of atoms, molecules, and clusters with ultrashort and intense XUV and X-ray pulses. The format of the program supports new collaborative innovations in these fields.


If you want to apply for participation in the program, please fill in the application form. You will be informed by the organizers shortly after the application deadline whether your application has been approved. Due to space restrictions, the total number of participants is strictly limited. (Invited speakers are of course automatically approved, but need to register anyway.)

Application deadline: 28 Feburary 2015

A minimum stay of one working week is required and we encourage participants to stay for a period of at least two weeks.

There is no registration fee.

Travel Reimbursement

A limited number of travel grants for PhD students and young Postdoc fellows will be available. If you have been accepted in the program and are interested in such a grant, please send a reasoned request to the organizers by April 15, 2015.


Nordita provides a limited number of rooms in the Stockholm apartment hotel BizApartments, as well as in Matsällskapet and Wallquistska guesthouses free of charge for accepted program participants.
