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

The Mid-IR spectrum covering wavelengths from ~2 µm up to THz has become a region of increased interest in recent years.

The region is rich in spectroscopic fingerprints of molecules, which are used to identify pollutants for chemical, environmental and medical diagnostics, for process control, as well as for safety, security and defense applications. This meeting will be focused on the most recent advances in mid-IR to THz science and technology, including the latest developments in solid-state and fiber lasers, semiconductor and quantum cascade lasers, nonlinear materials, frequency conversion devices and parametric sources, high-energy and high-intensity lasers, integrated photonics for frequency combs and continuum generation, as well as the application of mid-IR and THz sources in remote sensing, spectroscopy, frequency synthesis, imaging, and biomedicine.
