Laser Damage, the premier conference for high- power/high-energy lasers, materials & thin films

SPIE Laser Damage 2015

Thanks to all who attended SPIE Laser Damage 2015, a comprehensive resource for the exchange of information on high-power/high-energy lasers. Scientists and engineers continue research in these areas as well as materials and thin films, durability, properties modeling, testing, and component fabrication.

The Call for Papers for the 2016 conference will be posted by late December or early January.
