Light the Future with Margaret Murnane
Join OSA as we celebrate our 100th anniversary
with the Light The Future speaker series featuring distinguished scientists, engineers and Nobel Laureates. At LAOP we will be joined by Margaret Murnane, professor of physics at University of Colorado, JILA Fellow and OSA Fellow. Below is information about her talk.
Science at the timescale of the electron: how extreme nonlinear optics revolutionized tabletop X-ray lasers
Ever since the invention of the laser over 55 years ago, scientists have been striving to create an x-ray version of the laser. Advances in extreme nonlinear optics now make it possible to efficiently upshift tabletop femtosecond lasers into the ultraviolet (EUV) and soft X-ray regions of the spectrum, to wavelengths as short as 8Å. This unique high harmonic light source is ideally suited for host of applications in imaging and understanding how advanced materials function. A host of applications in nanoscience and nanotechnology have now been demonstrated, including full-field microscopes with record 14nm spatial resolution, quantifying how nanoscale energy flow differs from bulk, measuring how fast a material can change its electronic or magnetic state, and capturing the fastest motions of electrons in molecules and materials.
Wednesday, 24 August
Join your colleagues for a festive evening. The banquet is open to all full technical attendees. Conference attendees may purchase extra tickets in advance for their guest. This event will follow the Light the Future event.
Post Conference School on Ultrafast Optics
Friday, 26 August and Saturday 27 August
Andrew Weiner from Purdue University will offer this special two day course for a limited number of attendees on 25 & 26 August. You must select this item during registration to secure your spot.
