Electrons in two-dimensional hexagonal materials have valley degree of freedom, which can be used to encode and process quantum information. The valley-selective excitations, governed by the…
Theory of time-resolved nonresonant x-ray scattering for imaging ultrafast coherent electron motion
- G. Dixit, J. M. Slowik, R. Santra
- 3 April 2014
Future ultrafast x-ray light sources might image ultrafast coherent electron motion in real-space and in real-time. For a rigorous understanding of such an imaging experiment, we extend the theory of…

The effects of confinement and electron correlations on the relative time delay between the 3s and 3p photoemissions of Ar confined endohedrally in C60 are investigated using the time-dependent local density approximation and a recoil-type interaction model mediated by the confinement is found to best describe the phenomenon.
Angular asymmetry and attosecond time delay from the giant plasmon resonance in C-60 photoionization

- Chemistry, PhysicsNature Communications
- 1 April 2014
This work demonstrates an effective and robust method, which emphasizes the information encoded in weakly scattered photons, to image chemically active valence electron densities and provides experimental access to the long-standing problem of synchronous versus asynchronous bond formation and breaking during pericyclic reactions.
