New developments in optical sources, instrumentation, and spectroscopic techniques are principal driving forces for the increased use of lasers in chemical analysis and environmental monitoring. These developments arise in a variety of fields and technology areas, promoting the need for an international, interdisciplinary forum to communicate advances to scientists and engineers in the field. The eighth topical meeting is intended to continue the tradition of state-of-the art research and applications presented in an informal atmosphere designed to foster communication among researchers and practitioners. In addition to the topics traditionally presented in the conference, the present committee intends to add emphasis to optical biophysics and biochemistry.


Application of new laser sources to analytical spectroscopy

Diode laser applications in combustion, industrial, and atmospheric measurements
