AXSIS: Frontiers in Attosecond X-ray Science, Imaging and Spectroscopy

The AXSIS project at CFEL-Hamburg is a European Research Council funded project. The team is developing a new method of attosecond serial X-ray crystallography and spectroscopy, to give a full description of ultrafast processes atomically resolved in real space and on the electronic energy landscape, from co-measurement of X-ray and optical spectra, and X-ray diffraction. This technique will revolutionize our understanding of structure and function at the atomic and molecular level and thereby unravel fundamental processes in chemistry and biology like energy conversion processes.
