5-day training course on intense laser systems

From 16-20 October 2023, Laserlab-Europe and EURIZON jointly organise a “Training Course on Intense Lasers” at the ALPHANOV PYLA Training Center in Talence (Bordeaux), France.

The training course teaches the necessary skills to design and efficiently use intense laser systems. It includes five days of theory and practical application, more than ten expert trainers in the field, and twelve sessions of tutorials or lab works.

The course will address the theoretical background as well as practice and lab work, computation and simulations. The contents will include:

  • Laser Architecture
  • Laser source (oscillators)
  • Amplification, beam handling and focusing
  • Non Linear Optics: Frequency conversion and laser tunability
  • Laser diagnostics and beam management

Attendance is limited to 12 participants. Registrations are subject to approval.

There is no registration fee. Travel and accommodation will be covered by Laserlab-Europe and EURIZON. All applications are welcome. Applications from scientists in Ukraine are encouraged.

The PYLA training center provides training courses in the field of lasers, optics and photonics since 2005. Installed within the Institute of Optics of Aquitaine, the PYLA training center has premises entirely dedicated to the organisation of training courses for professionals.
