    Description

    Introduction to timescales and dynamics in solids
    Basics of femtosecond lasers and pump-probe technique
    Angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and the spectral function
    Time-resolved ARPES
    Out-of-equilibrium phenomena at surfaces
    Orbital tomography and ARPES
    Ultrafast dynamics of charge, spin and lattice degrees of freedom
    Core-level spectroscopies: XPS, RIXS, XAS and XES
    The physics at X-ray free electron lasers and short wavelengths
    Time-resolved X-ray spectroscopies
    X-ray diffraction for the atomic structure
    Time-resolved XRD

    Training objectives

    This lecture gives an introduction on the relevant timescales in the dynamics of solids and their application.
    It focuses on ultrafast phenomena from picoseconds to femtoseconds, which are relevant for modern physics.
    It combines the explanation of fundamental concepts with brief descriptions of the relevant experimental techniques using ultrashort photon pulses ranging from optical lasers to x-ray sources.
    Topics like pump-probe state-of-the-art photoemission, x-ray spectroscopies and x-ray diffraction are addressed.
