|Early Registration Date: Apr 17, 2002|
|Abstract Submission Date: Jan 07, 2002|
The 2002 conference will bring together a multidisciplinary group sharing a common interest in the generation of ultrashort pulses in the picosecond, femtosecond and attosecond regimes and their applications to studies of ultrafast phenomena in physics, chemistry, biology, material science and electronics. In addition, submissions involving real world applications of ultrafast technology are encouraged. A tabletop exhibit featuring leading companies will be held in conjunction with the meeting.
Topics to be Considered;
1.Generation and measurement
New sources, new wavelength regimes, nonlinear frequency conversion techniques, amplifiers, attosecond pulse generation, pulse shaping, pulse diagnostics and measurement techniques.
High intensity physics, X-ray and plasma physics, kinetics of nonequilibrium processes, quantum confinement, coherent transients, nonlinear pulse propagation, solitons, novel ultrafast spectroscopic techniques.
Vibrational and conformational dynamics, energy transfer, kinetics of laser-induced chemistry, proton and electron transfer, solvation dynamics, wavepacket motion and coherent control of reactions.
Ultrafast processes in photosynthesis, vision, heme proteins, photoisomerization in chromoproteins, wavepacket motion, medical applications.
5. Electronics & Optoelectronics
Photoconductivity, generation, propagation and detection of ultrafast electrical signals, terhertz radiation, electro-optical sampling, detectors.
Real world applications of ultrafast technology, including ultrafast near-field and nonlinear optics, high speed communication, micromachining, frequency standards and more.
