Abstract

Writing about “double-slits in time” bears the risk of entering mined area. It is thus advisable to first set the stage by describing the kind of experiments, either real ones or gedankenexperiments, we are going to discuss.

Keywords

Wave Packet Attosecond Pulse Gaussian Wave Packet Quantum Trajectory Absolute Phase 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
