Quantum Materials Probed with Attosecond Optoelectronics

Project description

Quantum materials could extend electronics speed limit to the petahertz realm

Attosecond technology, which enables us to study processes that unfold on timescales of 10^-18 seconds, has revolutionised the way we investigate the time-dependent evolution of the microscopic world. In the computing field, the insight gained from attoscience has the potential to improve the speed of information processing by six orders of magnitude, up to the petahertz range. Owing to their extraordinary properties, quantum materials are important for the development of petahertz electronics. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the QUMATTO project will probe the electronic and topological properties of quantum materials up to the attosecond scale via intense light fields. Project outcomes could help boost ultrafast information processing in 2D materials or 3D topological insulator materials.
