During this first EPFL lab tour of 2018, we invite you to discover the Laboratory of Ultrafast Spectroscopy (LSU)
directed by Prof. Majed Chergui.
The dream of every biologist, chemist or physicist is to observe in “real-time” the structural changes of the systems they study, be it in a biological function, a chemical reaction or a physical change. To do this, tools are necessary that can resolve molecular structures, which are about one-tenth of a billionth of a meter, but also that follow the atomic motions within them, which are of the order of tens of a millionth of a billionth of a second. LSU works on this field and the following methods of structural dynamics will be presented among others: ultrafast X-ray spectroscopy and multidimensional spectroscopy in the ultraviolet.
Date: Wednesday, March 21, 2018
Schedule: from 17h00 to 19h15, aperitif from 19h20
Language of the visit: the visit will be mainly in French. Some PhD students could make a presentation in English
