Fundamental and applicative research in laser-material interactions

This proposed Laser symposium aims at reuniting leading scientists, researchers, and laser users from academia and industry to share their most recent progress in laser-material processing and synthesis at any length (from the nano to macro level) and temporal (continuous wave to attosecond) scale. This symposium will focus both on fundamental as well as practical aspects of laser material processing, i.e. from biomedicine to eco-nano-technologies.


The "Fundamental and applicative research in laser-material interactions" symposium is intended to cover a wide range of topics focused on fundamental and applicative aspects of laser-material-interactions. 

The topics of the proposed symposium include, but are not limited to, laser-based materials synthesis, surface structuring and functionalization, process analytics and materials diagnostics with a special emphasis on both the micro- to nano-scale and continuous wave to attosecond scale. Special attention is focused towards recent progress in the fundamental mechanisms underlying in the laser-material-interaction, as well as on "hot topics" such as laser processing of novel materials aiming at the fabrication of photovoltaic cells, thermoelectric devices, systems for energy storage and conversion, sensors and biosensors, or new smart optics. This symposium shall bridge the works of fundamental or technological importance from across different areas of laser material interactions such as additive manufacturing, LIPSS formation, laser synthesis of colloids, laser transfer of soft materials and systems, and more emerging ultra-short, ultra-high-power laser-material interactions.

Among the highlights of the Laser symposium are the presentations of leading scientists from physical sciences, as well as the contributed and poster presentations. Particular attention shall be given to presentations submitted by young scientists with high-impact works. Similar to the previous years, the submitted papers will be published in a refereed ISI journal.

This symposium shall represent an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary platform for researchers and scientists from Europe and worldwide to present their experimental works and theoretical contributions in a friendly and captivating atmosphere.

Hot topics to be covered by the symposium:

  • Ultra-short, ultra-high power laser-material interactions: from fundamentals to applications in various fields (e.g. environment, materials science, biology),
  • Laser 3D machining for MEMS, MOEMS, photonic crystals, and photonic applications,
  • Laser Induced Forward Transfer of materials and devices,
  • Laser/plasma production of thin films, nanoparticles, nanocomposites and novel nanomaterials
  • Laser/plasma modification of surfaces and films including organic compounds and biomaterials
  • Modelling of laser-materials interactions and basic mechanisms
  • Processing with ultrashort laser pulses,
  • Time-resolved diagnostics of laser processing,
  • Laser machining in industry,
  • Laser additive manufacturing,
  • Applications of laser-induced surface structures,
  • etc ...
