  • Details the latest state of the art of the leading groups in attophysics
  • Presents a view of the present challenges and future potentials in attophysics
  • Explains how to implement attosecond pulse technology
  • Shows rich applications to measurements and control of physical processes
  • Provides an introduction for non-specialists in the field
Attophysics is an emerging field in physics devoted to the study and characterization of matter dynamics in the sub-femtosecond time scale. This book gives coverage of a broad set of selected topics in this field, exciting by their novelty and their potential impact. The book is written review-like. It also includes fundamental chapters as introduction to the field for non-specialist physicists. The book is structured in four sections: basics, attosecond pulse technology, applications to measurements and control of physical processes and future perspectives. It is a valuable reference tool for researchers in the field as well as a concise introduction to non-specialist readers.
