Past Event Overview

SPIE Laser Damage 2014

SPIE Laser Damage 2014 is now completed. Thank you to all the attendees and the community of Boulder for a wonderful meeting.

SPIE Laser Damage is 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. Don't miss this chance to present your latest work and exchange ideas with leaders in the field.

The Call for Papers for Laser Damage 2015 will open in January 2015.
