Training Event on Supercontinuum Broadband Light Sources for UV and IR Applications

After the great success of the european, the first SUPUVIR training workshop will be held in Besançon at the FEMTO-ST headquarters new building at Temis in Besançon on 19-21 September  2017. It will bring together early stage researchers and teachers in the field of physics and applications of supercontinuum generation (See organizing and steering committees). We will assemble a fantastic programme of speakers and teachers who will consider the many ways supercontinuum generation do play an essential role in photonics. The training event will include lecturers, numerical and lab works, and will be held in the spirit of a lively and constructive school with interruptions and questions encouraged !

Attendees are encouraged to arrive Monday 18 September in the evening.

The maximum number of participants is limited to 50.

Reservations will be accepted in the order they are received.

FEMTO-ST is a joint research unite associated with CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research) and the University Bourgogne-Franche-Comté and the department of Optics is internationally recognized in the fields of optoelectronics and nonlinear photonics.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Besançon.
