We investigate ultrafast electronic and structural dynamics in condensed matter systems. Employing laser-pump / electron-probe schemes in various configurations and at different energies, we develop and apply new experimental techniques based on imaging with ultrashort electron pulses from nanoscopic cathodes. Furthermore, we study highly nonlinear optical processes in metallic nanostructures, including strong-field photoemission from metal nanotips, optical and Terahertz control of photoemission processes, and extreme-ultraviolet light generation in plasmonic structures. Further Information can be found on our Homepage.
