Femtosecond Laser Damage: Past, Present, and Future

Chaired by: Enam A. Chowdhury, The Ohio State Univ. (USA)

Over the past two decades, the field of femtosecond laser damage have made strides not only in expanding our understanding of a fundamental non-perturbative light matter interaction, but also in building next generation ultra-intense lasers and application of femtosecond laser materials processing. Experimental and theoretical development in this exciting and rapidly expanding field will be discussed.
