STELLA 11 2011 - School for Training in Experiments with Lasers and Laser Applications

2011-06-20 - 2011-07-08
Como (Italy)

Note: the registration deadline for "Summer School Stella11" is fixed at December 31 - 2010.

Attend the next "School for Training in Experiments with Lasers and Laser Applications - STELLA 11", a three-week, advanced school in laser physics where highly qualified training in experimental techniques is delivered directly on top-level research equipment.

University of Insubria in Como (summer course 2011) will organize this event, previously hosted by the Laser Research Center in Vilnius (2007), the FORTH Institute of Electronic Structure and Lasers in Heraklion (2008) and the ICFO Institute for Photonic Sciences in Barcelona (2009).

Details of the program, teaching staff and how to apply are described in

The school is devoted to Ph.D. and postdoctoral students who are attending experimental research in the fields of laser physics, linear, nonlinear and quantum optics, as well as in those disciplines or research areas that rely upon an intensive use of laser technologies, such as medicine, biology, biochemistry, environmental protection, remote sensing, material processing, information technology, telecommunication, secure-data transmission, etc.

The program includes: Single-molecule Fluorescence Fluctuation Spectroscopy, Quantum Tomography and CHSH inequality, Measurement of intensity correlation function for pseudo-thermal light, High field physics and extreme nonlinear optics, Laser micro- and nanostructuring method using Bessel beams, Spatial light modulators: algorithms and testing of the SLM for real beams generation, Optical microscopy and its use for the characterization of soft materials, Laser speckle frequency correlations in random medium, Propagation of ultrashort laser pulses in transparent media: presentation of their physics effects and their modelling, Computational Optics in Extreme Nonlinear Regimes: From models to realistic, predictive simulations.
