Workshop Details
Progress in Ultrafast Laser Modifications of Materials
06/13/2018 - 06/16/2018
Meeting Description:

Purpose of workshop: This workshop brings together world experts in using ultrafast (femtosecond) lasers to modify materials at the atomic and molecular level, and understand the fundamental physics and chemistry behind these modifications. Interestingly, these modifications can be performed in three-dimensions, and span over tremendous spatial scales: from nanometers to centimeters (and beyond!). The community that is creating and utilizing these materials is extraordinarily multidisciplinary featuring physicists, chemists, electrical and mechanical engineers, biologists, etc.

The benefits of being able to manipulate materials with optical sources and optimize their properties are realized in novel devices that are also discussed/presented during the meeting. New devices created by this community are finding applications in astronomy, medicine, telecommunications, manufacturing, renewable energy, etc. Notably, these devices push the limits in what can be achieved in terms of sensitivity, strength, efficiency and speed relative to presently available technologies.

Notes:

The first workshop was held in Cargese, Corsica, April 15-19, 2013, and the second workshop was held in Neuchatel, Switzerland, June 13-17, 2016. Each workshop had strong participation, featuring 35-40 talks in a 30 minute presentation format that invited more extensive discussion than is achieved in a standard conference format. This will be the first time that the workshop comes to the U.S.

The 2018 Telluride meeting includes breakfast and lunch on each day of the meeting and 4 lunches.

If you are interested in attending a meeting, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer about availability before registering. Most TSRC meetings are very small, typically only about 25 people. If you have registered for a meeting you were not invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.
