Clemens von Korff Schmising is Department Head of Electron and Spin Dynamics and Project Coordinator of Solids and Nanostructures: Electrons, Spins, and Phonons at the Max-Born-Institut in Berlin.
Soft x-ray spectroscopy is a well-established experimental technique to probe element-specific properties of matter. Using laboratory-based high harmonic generation as a radiation source, we can additionally probe processes that occur on ultrafast time scales after femtosecond laser excitation. I will present recent results on probing laser-driven ultrafast magnetization dynamics and give examples of how an optically induced transient state can promote magnetization reversal. Finally, I will discuss the prospects of ultrafast soft X-ray spectroscopy for the investigation of 2D materials.
