Project successes include new open-source simulation program
The European Cluster of Advanced Laser Light sources (EUCALL), a European Union-funded project that aims to foster links between accelerator- and laser-driven X-ray facilities, has completed the first year of its three year project period. The project successfully met all twenty milestones for the year, producing a new open-source tool for experiment simulations and developing specifications for several pieces of new scientific equipment.
The Quantum Electronics and Optics Division [QEOD] board is delighted to announce that Prof. Reinhard Kienberger has been elected the winner of the 2016 prize for ‘Research in Laser Science and Applications’ for his seminal contributions to establishing the basic techniques for attosecond science with laser-based as well as accelerator-based sources. The prize will be awarded at the forthcoming Europhoton conference on Solid-State, Fibre and Waveguide Coherent Light Source to be held in Vienna, Austria from 21-26 August, 2016.
Aquitaine, a sunny paradise in the South West of France, is well-known for its splendid landscapes surrounding the Arcachon Bay, its rich history including early contributions to building Europe through Aliénor and Henry II of England, and its exceptional wines unrivaled worldwide.
Aquitaine attracts the light and its capital, Bordeaux, creates a vibrant and outstanding place for optical sciences.
The Quantum Electronics and Optics Division [QEOD] of the European Physical Society [EPS] is presently soliciting nominations for their biennial prize in ‘Research in Laser Science and Applications’ to be presented at the 2016 Europhoton Conference on Solid-State, Fibre and Waveguide Coherent Light Sources. Details of the application procedure and information required are given below.
The 18th International School on Quantum Electronics “Laser Physics and Applications” [18th ISQE'2014] will be held from 29 September to 3 October 2014 in Sozopol, Bulgaria.
The 18th ISQE’2014 is a traditional event, organized biennially since 1980. The proceeding of previous issues are available on 18th ISQE’2014 website.
The topics cover investigations of the basic physical phenomena, processes of interaction of laser radiation with…
The Quantum Electronics and Optics Division of the European Physical Society [EPS-QEOD] awarded its first ever Prize for Research in Laser Science and Applications to Dr. Thomas Udem (Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik, Garching, Germany). More information on the prize is available on the EPS-QEOD website. The prize was awarded to T. Udem “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”…
A new prize for Research in Laser Science and Applications has been launched by the Quantum Electronics & Optics Division [QEOD] of the European Physical Society [EPS]. The award – which is to be given biennially – will recognise recent excellent research, by up to three individuals, in the field of laser science and its application.
The award will be presented to its winner(s) during a prize ceremony at the 6th EPS Europhoton Conference on “Solid-State, Fibre and Waveguide Coherent Light Sources”, which is to be held in 2014…
