The 2nd International Conference on Photonics, Optics and Laser Technology [PHOTOPTICS 2014] will be held from 7-9 January 2014 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The conference will cover both theoretical and practical aspects of laser photonics and optics. Eminent keynotes speakers have been invited including two members of the European Physical Society: Alberto Diaspro from the Italian Institute of Technology, who will speak on the fluorescence optical microscopy at the nanoscale; and Markus Pollnau…

August 2013, News, , , ,

The International Coherent Amplification Network [ICAN] held a two-day symposium on new fibre laser-based accelerator concepts at CERN from 27 to 28 June 2013. The symposium assembled a wide range of scientists ranging from particle physicists to telecommunications engineers to explore how a new architecture of high intensity lasers could contribute to the next generation of particle accelerators.
The idea behind the use of lasers for particle acceleration exploits the fact that ultrashort laser pulses can generate electric field intensities sufficient to drive plasma wakefield dynamics which can accelerate electrons to GeV energies…
