The Symposium is the 11th in a series of International symposia, conferences and workshops on the topics of Ultrafast Dynamics and closely related and application-driven Ultrafast Bandgap Photonics which we are running internationally from 2016.
Topics presented at Ultrafast Dynamics and Ultrafast Bandgap Photonics conference series include those recognized with recent Nobel Prizes-both in Ultrafast Dynamics with 2023 Nobel Prize for Atto-Science in Physics, and in Ultrafast Bandgap Photonics with 2023 Nobel Prize for Quantum Dots in Chemistry. Researchers from the winning teams regularly have presented at our events and we are proud to congratulate the laureates, while setting up new goals and opening exciting prospective for the Symposia.
There are two specifics of the symposia: first that it tackles the most promising and relevant to applications results in the range from theoretical solid state physics studies to essential ultrashort pulse laser research, and the second that it brings together researchers and resources from all over the World-with no boundaries and limitations- with criteria that is only based on quality and significance of the results. An open and flexible format is provided for open panel discussions in order to foster interaction and development of ideas – along with presenting and demonstration necessary Ultrashort Pulse lasers and experimental techniques.
Ultrafast Dynamics and Metastability is focused on solid state physics phenomena resulted from excitation of solids by high intensity ultrashort energy pulse inducing strong athermal non-equilibrium in solids—generally all transient phenomena in magnetic materials, superconductors and so on.
Ultrafast Bandgap Photonics is focused on behavior of related physical fields induced in condensed matter, which may be generally represented by low dimensional structures and potential applications raised from that: applications that may lead to technological advancements in ultra-broadband and resilient electronics, communications technologies, on-chip unique spectrum photonic sources and so on.
The ultimate goal of the Symposium is to build a collaborative community which can expand and proliferate new ideas and concepts, boost research and development and accelerate the transition of theoretical and experimental concepts from Academia and Laboratories into tangible technologies and intellectual property for the commercial, governmental, and military markets. Most important focus of the Symposium is to face and tackle the challenges for understanding of Ultrafast Dynamics as seen in pump-probe experiments and many-body physics for fastest transition into the technology. The objective of the Symposium is to bring together the leading scientists and researchers from all around the world in order to exchange ideas on challenges posed by Ultrafast Dynamics and to point out at potential Ultrafast Bandgap Photonics technologies.
