The interaction of terahertz radiation with matter excites novel states with unique properties. These non-equilibrium states will certainly benefit from ultrafast characterization using the ultrashort and highly brilliant X-ray pulses available at FELs. With this in mind, we are pleased to announce a terahertz workshop, with the aim to find the most scientifically promising strategies to combine terahertz radiation with the unique X-ray pulses generated at European XFEL.
The 2 day workshop will be led by 18 presentations by invited international scientists. The first day will explore the scientific motivation for THz - X-ray experiments. The second day will focus on the two main routes to THz generation in the frequency range from 0.1 to 20 THz (3 mm to 15 µm): On the one hand, state of the art laser-based sources; and on the other, undulator sources based on a second, smaller accelerator. Specific aspects will be compatibility with the MHz repetition rate of the European XFEL and novel opportunities for coherent control in the multi-THz regime. We are interested in discussing how your research can benefit from a combination of these sources and help with their realization.
We encourage all participants to submit a poster to ensure that a broad range of THz - X-ray science can be discussed. A workshop dinner will take place on the evening of 1st June.
The workshop is fully booked since first of may 2017 - the closure day for the registration period. Due to the frequent requests for late registration, we will stream the event live. Pending, of course, the consent of each individual speaker, the stream will be available at:
