ICUSD 2017

4th International Conference on Ultrafast Structural Dynamics

Trieste, 5-7 December, 2017

ICUSD 2017 was a follow up to the conferences held at the ETH-Zurich in 2015, at the Laser Optics Berlin in 2012 and at the EPF-Lausanne in 2010.

ICUSD is a platform for discussing the latest methodological, theoretical and scientific developments aimed at understanding real-time structural changes in materials science, chemistry and biology. While these various communities have their scientific rationale, they share a variety of techniques including

  • Ultrafast EUV and x-ray diffraction, scattering and spectroscopy

  • Ultrafast multidimensional vibrational and electronic spectroscopies

  • Ultrafast electron diffraction, scattering and microscopy

which all aim at visualizing the dynamics of assemblies of atoms at the atomic-scale resolutions of space (the sub-Ã…) and time (the femtosecond). 

The conference, organized in 9 sessions and a round table, was aimed at building bridges to better connect these communities and to foster the exchange of information and expertise. More than 100 scientists from Italian and international research institutions attended the conference.

The abstract book and the detailed program of ICUSD are available here:
