I will present a short overview of research conducted at Australian Attosecond Science Facility at Griffith
University in Brisbane, Australia, emphasising our particular strengths in precision measurements on atomic and
molecular hydrogen applied to benchmarking and validating theoretical models. Then I will describe in more detail
two of our recent experiments. Firstly, I will show how we observed electron localisation in a dissociating hydrogen
molecular ion in real time and determined that electron becomes localised on one of the two protons in just 15 fs.
Secondly, I will talk about time-resolved Coulomb explosion imaging of ultrafast molecular dynamics in acetylene
2H2), where we observed vibrational modulation of dissociation probabilities as well as a clear signature of
enhanced ionization at critical distance
