To provide a venue for discussions among representatives of high-intensity laser facilities and members of user communities, on international collaborative activities such as the development of the next generation of ultrahigh intensity lasers, exploration of new areas of fundamental and applied research, and formation of a global research network for access to advanced facilities by users.
How do we characterize high intensities ? Characterization of focal field formed by a large numerical aperture paraboloidal mirror and generation of ultra-high intensity (1022 W cm-2) .....
How do we get to high laser intensities ? In CPA, the ultrashort pulse is not amplified directly, but is first stretched and then amplified, before finally being recompressed. CPA reconciles two apparentl.....
Three groups, one in the US at Berkeley, lead by W. Leemans1, one in England, lead by K. Krushelnick2.
The 1st Asian workshop on Generation and Application of High-Order Harmonics was held during Feb. 23-25, 2005 at KAIST, Daejeon, Korea. The workshop was organized to provide a forum.
News Bulletin : Over the weekend of December 5th, quite unexpectedly, the ICUIL community lost one of its true champions, Professor Wolfgang Sandner. Among his many illustrious leadership roles, Wolfgang served as Co-Chair of ICUIL for many years.
To lose a colleague that has been an exemplary leader in the development and application of lasers is one thing, but to lose a friend is something much more profound. We have lost both a dedicated colleague and a genuine friend, and will feel a very large gap in our lives. It is one of the great privileges of being a scientist - we can participate in a hugely enjoyable and meaningful activity, while making lifelong friends. Wolfgang was a dedicated and warm friend to all of us, and he always took a genuine interest in all of us individually, both personally and professionally. He will be deeply missed.
