The aim of this special topic, is to address experimental and theoretical methods and novel approaches based on the application of attosecond pulses and intense femtosecond fields to investigate ultrafast structural changes occurring in molecular systems as well as solid targets and surfaces. The special topic will features contributions of expert scholars applying different, yet complementary methods for the investigation of structural dynamics using attosecond and strong-field effects either for triggering or monitoring structural dynamics occurring on timescale ranging from a few femtoseconds down to the attosecond scale. The resulting collection of papers will be a precious informative reference for the community interested in using attosecond light pulses to time-resolve and control ultrafast structural changes occurring in molecules, solids and surfaces.
