Multiphoton Processes
Attoseconds, Intense Fields, and Ultrafast Imaging
June 3-8, 2012
Mount Holyoke College
South Hadley, MA
Chair:
David Villeneuve

Vice Chair:
Barry C. Walker

The 16th Gordon Research Conference on Multiphoton Processes will take place at a new venue, Mount Holyoke College. The field has progressed considerably since the first meeting, and so the conference topics have adapted as exciting new research areas open up. The scientific program is cross-disciplinary, including physicists, chemists and optical engineers, in both theory and experiment. The speakers and discussion leaders are a mixture of established leaders in the field and young and upcoming researchers from around the world. The sessions will focus on:

  • Attosecond science
  • Strong-field processes in molecules and solids
  • Generation of harmonics and attosecond pulses
  • Free-electron laser experiments and theory
  • Ultrafast imaging
  • Applications of very high intensity lasers
  • Propagation of intense laser fields
