XIII International Conference on pulsed lasers and laser applications - AMPL-2017

September 10-15, 2017, Tomsk, Russia

Second Announcement

Arrangements for the next International Conference on pulsed lasers and their applications AMPL-2017 (Atomic and Molecular Pulsed Lasers) are going on. The AMPL Conference, which is held in Tomsk biennially, is the greatest scientific forum on this subject in the Commonwealth of Independent States. This year the 13th AMPL Conference will last from the 10th to the 15th of September 2017.
The Conference is supported by.
Organizing Committee.
International Organizing Committee.
The following topical areas will be considered at the Conference: new laser transitions; laser pumping systems; peculiarities of power input into laser active media; volume discharges; up-to-date power supplies and active elements; lasers with active media compound composition; investigation of photoprocesses in organic compounds; organic materials for optoelectronics, non-linear processes in molecular systems under laser emission; amplifier-oscillator systems; conversion of laser beam parameters in crystal and gaseous media; harmonic generators of sum and difference frequencies; new materials for laser emission conversion, etc.
Principal goals of the Conference are both exchange of up-to-date knowledge and connecting of fundamental and applied science.  Therefore within the Conference peculiar attention will be paid to laser applications in different areas of science and engineering (ecology, medicine, industry, fight against terrorism, research activities, etc.), discussion of problems of laser-based apparatus development, new optical technologies, as well as to exchange of practical experience on application of the achievements of science to production and project commercialization. The AMPL Conference is a traditional place of meeting of potential partners, optical devices manufacturers, customers and executors of research efforts and experimental development.

The Conference scientific program offers the following sessions:
  • gas and plasma lasers, metal vapor lasers (session A) – coordinators A. Soldatov & A. Razhev
  • photonics of optical materials, optoelectronics (session B) – coordinators T. Kopylova & O. Tchaykovskaya
  • femtosecond laser systems (session C) – coordinators A. Zemlyanov & V. Losev
  • laser systems, and new laser and optical technologies, laser applications (session D) – coordinators G. Evtushenko & M. Levitskiy
  • non-coherent UV and VUV-radiation sources (session E) – coordinators E. Sosnin & M. Lomaev
  • conversion of laser radiation, optoelectronic devices, nonlinear optics (session F) – coordinators Yu. Andreev & V. Svetlichniy
  • round table discussions "Biofotonics" (session G) – coordinators Yu. Kistenyov & A. Kabanov
  • gas discharges for lasers and non-coherent radiation sources (session H) - coordinator V. Tarasenko.
The Conference program provides for listening to the invited and oral presentations and work of poster sessions. Abstracts of the papers and Conference Program will be placed on the Conference web-site and edited in printing. 

The School for young scientists (younger than 35 years), students and postgrads  (AMPL-School) and a competition for them will be held. A competition will take place within the session Y in two categories: for participants with the scientific degree and without it.

 The Conference proceedings will be issued in a subject editions of Atmospheric and Oceanic Optics and, probably, Proceedings of SPIE (this possibility is being discussed now, the probability of positive decision is high).  Author guidelines are available at the web-sites of these editions.

Conference participants will have an opportunity to visit research institutes and universities of Tomsk city as well as to make a Tomsk sightseeing tour.
