    Past Event Overview

    SPIE Laser Damage, Boulder, CO , United States

     SPIE Laser Damage 2015 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.

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