EPS2020 Satellite Meeting

EPS2020 Satellite Meeting

Saturday 26th June 2021, Sitges (Spain)

High Field laser-plasma interaction (HIFI)
& Laser-driven particle and radiation sources for application (LASA)

The development of major high-power laser facilities in Europe and around the world has opened new possibilities for investigation in High Field physics and applied physics with emphasis on possible civil applications.

HIFI: New regimes of matter under extreme conditions, encompassing ultra-relativistic plasma physics and quantum electrodynamics will be explored. This meeting brings together scientists with interest in the theory, simulation, and experimental exploration of light-matter interactions in these regimes. Topics include lastest progress in high-field experiments at currently existing laser facilities; the application of fundamental theories such as QED to light-matter interactions; developments in numerical simulations and phenomenology.

LASA: Laser-driven particle and radiation sources are promising for many scientific and technical applications. Improving the characteristics and reproducibility of these sources are key aspects of their competitiveness in the scientific community, medicine, and industry. The forum will provide an opportunity for groups working on different short-pulse laser facilities in Europe and abroad to exchange the results, methodology, and coordinate their plans.

Remember that this Satellite Meeting will be on 26th June, the day after the EPS2020 takes place!
