Pioneers in the field present the first broad and in-depth overview of current research in attosecond nanophysics, covering new developments and potential applications. Serves as an introduction for starting graduate students, as well as a look at the current state of the art.
The first broad and in-depth overview of current research in attosecond nanophysics, covering the field of active plasmonics via attosecond science in metals and dielectrics to novel imaging techniques with the highest spatial and temporal resolution.
The authors are pioneers in the field and present here new developments and potential novel applications for ultra-fast data communication and processing, discussing the investigation of the natural timescale of electron dynamics in nanoscale solid state systems.
Both an introduction for starting graduate students, as well as a look at the current state of the art in this hot and emerging field.

Matthias Kling is professor of physics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) München and guest researcher at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) in Garching, Germany. His group is associated with the DFG excellence cluster ?Munich Centre for Advanced Photonics? and the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics of F. Krausz. M. Kling received his PhD in 2002 from the University of Goettingen in Germany. He began studying attosecond phenomena as a postdoc for M.J.J. Vrakking at AMOLF in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and since 2007 develops attosecond science with nanostructures with his own group. He moved on to his current position at LMU after an appointment at the Kansas-State University in Manhattan, Kansas, USA.
