Coherent control of electronic charge at a nanometer scale is the

primary challenge in quest for energy-efficient electronics. The network aims at making important steps towards that goal by combining expertise in time-dependent many-particle quantum mechanics and in nanoscale electronic devices such as variants of graphene. 


The efforts give theoretical support to the emergence of "attosecond science", where novel light sources and laser facilities across the word are used to probe dynamics in the natural electronic time scale. 


The network comprises research groups in all five nordic countries and supports active and informal interaction and mobility between researchers.
