XVI International Conference on Ultrafast Phenomena
Topical Meeting and Tabletop Exhibit

Download Conference flyer

Connect with the most accomplished international scientists,researchers, engineers and business leaders as they shape the future of optics, photonics and laser science.

ABOUT UP:

The 2008 Ultrafast Phenomena Conference will be the sixteenth in a series on
advances in research on ultrafast science and technology. This meeting is
widely recognized as the major international forum for the discussion of new
work in this rapidly moving field.
The 2008 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, material science, electronics,
biology, engineering, and medical applications. 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.

Plan to attend UP 2008!

Postdeadline Submission Deadline: Monday May 26th

Generation and Measurement – New sources, new wavelength regimes, nonlinear frequency conversion techniques, amplifiers, attosecond pulse generation, pulse shaping, pulse diagnostics and measurement techniques
and frequency standards.
Physics – Ultrafast nonlinear optical processes, kinetics of nonequilibrium processes, quantum confinement, coherent transients, nonlinear pulse propagation, novel ultrafast spectroscopic techniques, high intensity physics, X-ray and plasma physics.
Chemistry – Vibrational and conformational dynamics, energy transfer, kinetics of laser-induced chemistry, proton and electron transfer, solvation dynamics, wavepacket motion and coherent control of reactions.
Biology – Ultrafast processes in photosynthesis, vision, heme proteins, photoisomerization in chromoproteins, wavepacket motion and medical applications.
Electronics & Optoelectronics – Photoconductivity, generation, propagation and detection of ultrafast electrical signals, terahertz radiation, electro-optical sampling and detectors.
