We invite you to attend the 2018 International High Power Laser Ablation Conference (HPLA), 26 - 29 March 2018 at the beautiful La Fonda on the Plaza Hotel, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. HPLA is a world-class International conference on basic physics and applications of pulsed and CW laser interaction with materials, as well as laser sources, beam propagation and detection. The HPLA series is organized around broad physical phenomena rather than one specific technology. HPLA treats advances in all related aspects from basic physics to applications. Beamed energy propulsion and directed energy have been key elements of the program over the years as well. This is the twelfth meeting since our founding in 1998.
Every conference features new and cutting edge sessions. A sampling of the 2018 sessions include:
• Laser-Induced Shock Applications
• Lasers in Cosmology
• Femtosecond Repetitive Action on Materials
• Plasmonics and Metamaterials
• Thermal and Mechanical Coupling with Ultrashort Pulses
A full listing of the 2018 sessions will be posted to the website in April 2017. Past keynote speakers for HPLA and BEP have included such luminaries as Prof. Gérard Mourou, Prof. Eric Mazur, Prof. Charles Townes, Prof. Yuri Raizer, Prof. Arthur Kantrowitz, Prof. Oleg Krokhin, Dr. Raymond Kidder, and Prof. Sadao Nakai. We promise you another fascinating group of keynoters in 2018! We look forward to seeing you again, or to meeting you for the first time in the oldest capital city in America! See you in Santa Fe!
