The annual meeting of the Division of Laser Science of the American Physical Society features all of the latest and most exciting developments in laser science, and the use of lasers for the investigation of physical phenomena and their ensuing applications. The program highlights include a plenary talk "Counting the Frequency of Light," by Prof. T. W. Haensch, symposia with multiple invited and contributed papers, headlined by the BEC Nobel Symposium. New areas in laser science covered in symposia include Coherent Laser Control of Processes in Chemistry and Physics, Physics with Strong Optical Fields, Ultrafast Metrology, Nanophotonics, Quantum Information, Photonic Band Gap Structures and Materials, Slow Light, Multi-dimensional Laser Spectroscopy, Ultracold Molecules, Atom Optics and Guided Atoms, Laser Tweezers, and Cavity QED. A special symposium for undergraduate research is also planned.
