Summer School on laser technology for high-energy lasers, 7-11 October 2024, Hyères (France)

THRILL summer school poster_v3.pngThe EU funded project THRILL organises a summer school on laser technology for high-energy lasers from 7 to 11 October 2024 in Hyères, France. Focus topics will be:

  • laser architecture and laser amplification
  • diagnostics and beam quality control
  • AI in optimization and control
  • optical coating technologies

The school will alternate lectures and directed work in small groups.

PhDs & early career scientists are invited to register through the event website before 31 July 2024.

If your institute is not a member of the THRILL consortium, the participation fee for the summer school in EUR1.000 and includes board and accommodation as well as a bike excursion on the island of Porquerolles.

Scientists from Laserlab-Europe members are particularly encouraged to participate. A limited number of bursaries is available.

The THRILL project aims at providing new designs and high-performance components for high-energy high-repetition-rate lasers, enabling the technical readiness level required to specify and build the needed devices. THRILL is funded by the EU’s HORIZON EUROPE program under the grant agreement 101095207. Participating institutions, apart from GSI/FAIR, are Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser Facility and Forschungsverbund Berlin in Germany, as well as Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique and Amplitude Systems in France, the ELI ERIC, Laserlab-Europe AISBL in Belgium and the University of Rochester in the USA.
