Attosecond and XUV Physics

All speakers at the summer school are asked to provide a book chapter covering their topic to create an up-to-date textbook and standard reference to the field.

Aim of the book

The aim of the book is to provide fundamental knowledge in the fields of attosecond science and free electron lasers, based on the insight that the further development of both disciplines can benefit a lot from mutual exposure and interaction between the two communities. The book will cover all technological aspects involved in the production and characterization of attosecond and FEL light pulses, as well as the theoretical and experimental aspects of related light-matter interactions. Modern attosecond and FEL experiments extend our scientific reach into a poorly investigated frequency and time domain and offer a fundamentally new approach to observe the behavior of matter on the nanoscale.

The book is aimed at graduate and postgraduate students and shall support the scientific training of early stage researchers in the emerging research field. It will allow young researchers to develop a wide range of scientific skills in order to accelerate the development of spectroscopic techniques and their implementation in scientific experiments.

Creation Process

We ask all speakers to write an illustrated 30-50 page contribution covering their summer school topic on the graduate level. Please contact authors with related topics to ensure a good thematic coverage without unnecessary duplications. Each chapter will be thoroughly reviewed by a network partner or an external referee to guarantee highest scientific and linguistic standards and good topicality. If you want to propose a particular partner for the review of your chapter, please let us know. With support of the publisher Wiley, the editors will then distill the chapters into a cohesive textbook with an expected publishing date early in 2012. 
Wiley will supply a Scholar One website for the chapter submission process and offers a MS Word and a Latex template.

Style and Templates

Vera Palmer supplied a one-page guide to help you prepare your chapter according to the Wiley guidelines. If you require more information, please refer to the more extensive Wiley style guide. Wiley offers a template for MS-Word and Latex. I pasted some content into their latex template to check its function here (simple text body) and here (including chapter structure and sample references). 

If you need any help, please don't hesitate to contact me.
