Call for
Innovation in laser resonator design may be the solution to various scientific and technological problems, from improving the fundamental performance of laser systems to enabling new laser-based applications. Advancement in laser design can take many forms including controlling the shape of the laser beam, improving the cavity performance, and extending the laser operating range.

These features are frequently interdependent, as advances in laser system design rapidly leads to new application areas. For example, improvements in the performance of optical microresonators and optical resonator based-laser sources have provided an expanding toolkit for a growing number of photonics applications including optical frequency combs, microphotonic frequency metrology, signal processors and routers, radio-frequency, terahertz oscillators, photonic transmitters and receivers, high-rate data communication, compact range detectors (LiDARs), biochemical, inertial, and many other diverse optical microsensors. This conference provides a forum to bridge the communities of innovators in microresonator design and in microresonator laser-based applications.

Conference papers are solicited on a wide range of topics related to the conference title, including but not limited to the following:

  • active and adaptive laser resonators
  • stable and unstable laser resonators for high-quality laser beams
  • resonators for gas, solid state, and fiber lasers
  • high-stability laser resonators.
