The Lein group does research on atoms and molecules in ultrafast external fields, mostly in the regime of strong laser fields where perturbation theory is not applicable. The control of quantum mechanical dynamics on the femtosecond to attosecond time scale and Ångström spatial scale are two essential aspects of our work.
