Laser Systems (PL)

This group encompasses novel laser system development for a broad range of scientific, industrial, medical, remote sensing and other directed-energy applications. The group addresses technical issues concerning sources that cover the full spectral range, including: ultraviolet, visible, infrared, terahertz and microwave. Strong overlap with other technical groups that study and develop laser techniques and technologies brings together researchers and engineers to produce sources with unique performance, such as high-power, ultra-short pulses and high coherence.

OSA International Workshop on Compact EUV & X-ray Light Sources, 30-31 October 2014.
This workshop is a follow-up to the recent OSA Compact EUV and X-Ray Light Sources Incubator Meeting, which was held in November 2013.
 
The Workshop will be held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC, is collocated with the 2014 International Symposium on Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography.
 
The goal of this workshop is to build upon the momentum and the enthusiasm created by the past OSA Incubator to gather both the compact light source developers, potential users, and others interested in this new field to present their work, exchange ideas, and to network with colleagues with diverse needs and interests.
