Advanced Solid State Lasers 2015

Advanced Solid State Lasers 2015

DGaO members are invited to share their research and submit a paper for review to the 2015 OSA Advanced Solid State Lasers Conference and Exhibition (ASSL) in Berlin, Germany, 4 - 9 October 2015. ASSL highlights new sources, advanced technologies, components and system design to improve the operation and application of solid state lasers. It covers the spectrum of solid state lasers from materials research to applied science and design innovations. Hear research on innovation in materials, components, fabrication techniques and design alternatives to enhance laser performance.

The submission deadline is 16 June 2015.  DGaO is an Association Partner for the meeting and DGaO members are eligible for the discounted member registration rate.  To receive the discounted registration rate, members of DGaO should identify themselves as members of DGaO and use the code DGAO1115 in place of a membership number during on-line registration.
