The 6th EUROPHOTON conference “Solid State, Fibre, and Waveguide Coherent Light Sources” will take place at Neuchatel, Switzerland from 24 to 29 August 2014.
The biannual conference from the European Physical Society’s Quantum Electronics and Optics Division [EPS-QEOD] is aimed to bring together world-renowned researchers to discuss the latest advances in the field of solid-state lasers and fibre and waveguide devices.
The conference will comprise informal breakout sessions for discussion, summer school sessions for Postdoc and Ph.D. students and an exhibition that will allow laser and photonics related companies to present their new products among attendees. In addition, the conference will also feature a special symposium, entitled “Lasers for Biomedical Imaging and Sensing”.
During the conference, the 2013 Prize for Research in Laser Science and Application will be presented to Dr. Thomas Udem (Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik, Garching, Germany) “for significant contributions to the development of optical frequency combs and their extension into the vacuum-ultra-violet region, as well as the realization of applications in astronomy, metrology and ultra-precise fast sensitive spectroscopy”. The laureate will present his work in a 30-minute invited talk.
EUROPHOTON has the Europhysics conference label, awarded to conferences organised by the EPS or one of its Divisions or Groups. Europhysics conferences can also use EPS Conference Services guarantying quality and great visibility.
The deadline for abstract submission is 10 April 2014 and early registration opens on 10 February 2014. For more information, please visit the conference website.
