The seminar intends to survey the state of the art of novel light sources, illuminate their underlying physics, and to provide a forum to discuss accomplished and future applications. Topics will include terahertz quantum-cascade lasers, free-electron lasers, x-ray lasers, few-cycle pulses, and ultrahigh (relativistic) intensities, as well as theoretical concepts and mathematical methods. The main focus will be on the recent progress and the potential of attosecond pulses.

The seminar will feature invited talks and poster presentations in the informal atmosphere of the Universitätszentrum Obergurgl, which is located in the inner Ötztal with its unsurpassed snow conditions and hours of sunshine.
