CFEL-DESY Theory Division

The CFEL-DESY Theory Division develops theoretical and computational tools to predict the behavior of matter exposed to intense electromagnetic radiation. We employ quantum-mechanical and classical techniques to study ultrafast processes that take place on time scales ranging from picoseconds (10-12 s) to attoseconds (10-18 s). Our research interests include the dynamics of excited many-electron systems; the motion of atoms during chemical reactions; and x-ray radiation damage in matter.
