Attosecond science opens a new window to the control of photochemical reactions
Light-initiated chemical processes are widespread, and their applications span vital areas of molecular research ranging from medicine and computing to energy conversion. However, photochemical reactions are limited by the nature and finite number of excited electronic states of molecules and therefore often lack control and selectivity. To overcome this fundamental limitation, the EU-funded ATTOP project will bring recent technological advances in attosecond science to photochemistry and explore the emerging field of ‘atto-photochemistry’ using modeling approaches. The final goal is to develop general know-how in the design of molecular systems, electronic wave packets and attosecond experiments that will transform the outcome of photochemical reactions for various applications.
