Innovation in laser resonator design is key to solving 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 creating new functionality. These features are frequently interdependent, as advances in laser system design rapidly leads to new application areas.

Classical approaches to cavity design and beam shaping have been recently amended with vast new opportunities stemming from achievements of material science, micro- and nano-fabrication, metrology, and instrumentation. New technical and industrial needs stimulate new methods of beam shaping and control for optimized energy delivery in fabrication, communication, sensing, and other laser uses.

Advances in the field of optical microresonators have produced an expanding toolkit for a growing number of photonics applications, including optical frequency combs, microphotonic frequency metrology, signal processing, quantum communication and computing, high-rate data communication, biochemical, inertial, range sensors (LiDARs), and other emerging areas.

This conference provides a forum to bridge the communities of innovators in laser resonators, beam control and shaping, and microcavity technology and microlaser-based applications. Conference papers are solicited on a wide range of topics related to the conference title, including but not limited to the following:
