High harmonic spectroscopy has been used for decades for sub-femtosecond resolution of molecular dynamics and attosecond measurements of electronic configurations. Recently, these ideas have been transferred to condensed matter to understand strong field processes in semiconductors and dielectrics. In developing these attosecond techniques, we have discovered that we can fully map the waveform of an ultrashort pulse, or create a broad spectrum sensor for THz radiation. In this talk, I will discuss the possibilities for spectroscopy using some of these attosecond technologies.
