23 March 2020 – 25 March 2020 Prague Congress Centre, Prague, Czech Republic
12 July 2020

This OSA Meeting has been postponed.

The OSA High-brightness and Light-driven Interactions Congress was not held as originally scheduled. The congress committee has expressed a preference to convene the meeting later this year, and OSA is currently exploring venues in Prague for the late November or early December time frame.

We continue to monitor health and travel advisories related to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and commit to being responsive amidst changing conditions. We appreciate your patience in waiting for an announcement on future plans.


The aim of the Compact EUV and X-ray Light Source meeting is to assemble experts in both source technologies and their applications to present and exchange ideas and improve community wide understanding of current and future source capabilities, and current and future application needs.

At this meeting the latest results in the development of these sources will be presented as well as descriptions of efforts to mature the technology so that they meet the requirements needed in order to transition the technology to industrial and medical applications. Conference topics will include relevant applications and source concepts and technologies in the EUV through hard-ray regime.

Emerging, compact extreme-ultraviolet and X-ray sources that exhibit high brightness and are small enough to be installed in laboratories at educational and research institutions, manufacturing facilities, hospitals, and other suitable sites, will revolutionize scientific and technical disciplines, complementing both existing and future large scale synchrotron radiation and free-electron laser sources. Applications span a wide range including biomedical, semiconductor manufacturing, fundamental and applied research, environmental engineering, industrial non-destructive testing and screening, and defense and security.
