Online workshop on intense laser applications


Thursday 23th September 2021 from 10:00 to 12:00 pm (CET)


According to the current Work Plan, the Action is promoting to focus collaborative efforts around three major areas, namely, biotechnological applications, electron-phonon phenomenology and intense laser applications. On Thursday, 23th September we had the third online workshop, this time, on intense laser applications open to all Action members.

The goal of the workshop was to put into contact colleagues with expertise in different aspects of radiation- matter, in particular, intense laser irradiation experiments and modelling to develop or improve applications. A number of approaches to improve the state-of-the-art are being developed by Action members. The online workshop and the next face-to-face meetings are aimed at facilitating the necessary interactions among researchers from different fields.

The workshop had a reduced format with just a few presentations and a round table open to all participants. The workshop was chaired by Nikita Medvedev (Institute of Physics, Czech Academy of Sciences). Topics covered include among others:
   • Intense laser interaction with matter
   • Secondary sources
   • Plasma acceleration
   • Ultrashort pulses
   • Free Electron Lasers
   • Opto-acoustics
   • Filamentation
   • Multiscale modelling

The workshop consisted of a few presentations followed by a round table as detailed next:
