This seminar will cover time-resolved spectroscopic methods to investigate dynamic systems in the interdisciplinary field of physics, chemistry, biology, materials- und life-sciences. The timescales of dynamic processes occur over many orders of magnitude from atto- and femtoseconds to days. Examples are light-induced excitation, cooling and separation of charge carriers in photovoltaics (fs to ps), complex kinetics of chemical catalysis as well as the structure-function relationship in (photo)chemical and biochemical systems (ns to µs) and the chemical degradation of catalysts (µs to days). These examples are united by the fact that inherent dynamic processes span several orders of magnitude in time and only their overall sum allows for entirely understanding the properties of a system. There is a large number of spectroscopic and specialized analysis methods for the above-mentioned processes that require a high degree of expertise. We expect a significant gain if these methods can be combined to completely cover the description of a system.

We strive to broaden the understanding of time-resolved methods and connect researchers on specific methods and systems by discussing current scientific questions from different perspectives. The individual topics will be introduced by experts, spectroscopists and method developers, followed by presentations of the participants in order to promote new collaborations and enable efficient networking.

We will set a special focus on young academics who often have to face the challenge to become independent experts in a narrow field, but also need to review their work critically in light of the full picture of their research.
