In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

Atoms and Molecules in the Focus of Intense Laser Pulses
(Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics)
So-called ‘Reaction Microscopes’ enable kinematically complete experiments of atomic and molecular break-up reactions with ultimate completeness. These ‘bubble chambers’ of atomic physics have tremendously widened our possibilities to investigate the many-electron quantum-dynamics under the influence of external time-dependent fields in various situations: The response of atoms and molecules on femtosecond (10-15 s) time-scales has been probed by exposing them to intense (up to 1016 W/cm2) ultra-short laser pulses. In pump-probe experiments the rotational and vibrational motion of small molecules was followed in real-time and it is hoped that in near future even the formation of new bonds can be traced as function of time. In first experiments with VUV laser pulses from the free-electron laser FLASH in Hamburg the simultaneous absorption of two or three photons has been studied, a regime that is completely unexplored up to now. In very recent experiments at FLASH it was found that the conformational and electronic structure of molecules can be explored in utmost detail with intense VUV laser pulses. Presently, work is in progress to visualize, for the very first time, the breaking of chemical bonds as a function of time and, thus, to realize the dream of producing a “molecular movie”.
