Abstract:\begin{wrapfigure}{l}{0pt} \includegraphics[scale=0.3]{Conical.eps} \end{wrapfigure} Femtosecond and attosecond XUV spectroscopy was used to study of electron dynamics stemming from many-body interactions, including the coupling between the electronic and nuclear degrees of freedom, electronic correlations, external light fields, or a combination thereof. \footnote{This work was supported by the U.

Using pump-probe photodissociation spectroscopy, we made quantitative measurements of electronic couplings and monitored the role of decoherence in such dynamics, thereby probing the fundamental mechanisms responsible for the charge and energy redistribution in molecules. In another study, time resolved XUV photoelectron spectroscopy was applied to identify the role of multi electron excitations in the ultrafast Rydberg state dissociation of highly excited states in O$_2$. The talk will also discuss new opportunities arising the application of attosecond soft-x-ray sources.
