11th International Conference on Photo-Excited Processes and Applications – ICPEPA 11, September 10-14, 2018, Vilnius, Lithuania

11th International Conference on Photo-Excited Processes and Applications – ICPEPA 11 will be held in Vilnius, Lithuania on September 10-14, 2018.

The conference is the place to share new results and ideas regarding fundamentals of laser-matter interaction, photo-excited processes and application, and increase networking and collaboration opportunities in a relaxing environment. Peer-reviewed papers based on presentation at the conference will be published in a Special Issue of the Applied Surface Science Journal.

Vilnius is a city with old traditions in lasers, laser spectroscopy and technologies.

Lasers and Lithuania – similarities are not only in the first letter of both words. Lasers is a fingerprint of the country and became the third religious after Christianity and basketball. Topics on new lasers for photo-excitation and applications are considered at ICPEPA 11.

Research activities on photo-excitation of atoms, molecules and solids can be found in Lithuania for a long time. Emerging new application of photo-excited processes in „green“ energy: photovoltaics, photocatalysis; photosynthesis will be discussed.

New topics on fast and precise processing with ultra-short pulse lasers, 3D printing, industrial applications are awaiting your contribution.

ICPEPA-11 topics include but not limited to:

  1. Fundamental phenomena in laser-matter interactions;
  2. Theoretical analysis, simulation and modelling of photo-excited processes;
  3. Dynamics and diagnostics of photo-excited processes;
