About the book

The understanding of fast dynamics in the femtosecond time region is very significant not only for basic science of physics, chemistry and biology, but also in the creation of new materials and devices. In recent years, the progress in lasers and particle accelerators allows us to generate ultrashort photon and electron pulses with compact experimental instruments. The femtosecond imaging techniques with ultrashort-pulsed lasers, X-rays, THz light and electrons have been developed and paved the way for the observation and study of ultrafast phenomena in real time and real space, including electron and molecular dynamics, phase transitions, reaction kinetics and mechanisms, and structural changes in biology. This book intends to provide the reader with topics that include the following disciplines: (1) comprehensive overview of the femtosecond imaging, (2) present status and outlooks of various imaging methodologies using the ultrashort-pulsed lasers, X-rays, THz light and electrons, and (3) current and potential applications in materials science, biology and chemistry.

Publishing process

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: November 15th 2019

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: February 3rd 2020

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: April 3rd 2020

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

About the editor

Jinfeng Yang

Osaka University

Dr. Jinfeng Yang is an associate professor at the Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research, Osaka University. He worked on the generation and applications of high-brightness femtosecond/picosecond pulsed electron beams in particle accelerator field over twenty years. He has published more than 100 papers in indexed scientific journals and international conferences. His current research is concerned on the development of ultrafast electron diffraction/microscopy with relativistic femtosecond electron pulses and the study of ultrafast phenomena including dynamic processes in material systems and chemical/biochemical reactions.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
