The European Optical Society (EOS) is proud to present their second topical Meeting on Lasers to be held in Italy, 26th - 28th September 2011, at the Island of Capri, Italy.
Laser physics and technology is a very diverse field in rapid development and of utmost importance for technological development in the 21st century. Advances in semiconductor lasers, fibre lasers, solid-state lasers, parametric devices and nonlinear frequency conversion provide powerful tools for an increasingly broad range of applications including spectroscopy, metrology, remote sensing, communications, entertainment and display technology, material processing, astronomy, biology and life sciences.
Europe has a strong position in the field of laser physics and technology, and the aim of this meeting is to further strengthen this position.
The conference programme will focus on fundamental as well as more applied topics. The major subjects will be: Semiconductor lasers, quantum-dot lasers, diode-pumped lasers, fiber lasers, nonlinear frequency conversion, parametric devices, ultrafast lasers, materials for lasers and nonlinear optics.
