9th Joint HGS-HIRe & RS-APS Lecture Week on Atomic and Laser/Plasma Physics - October 2021 - Online

Please note: Due to the Covid-19 situation this lecture week cannot be held as a face-to-face event in the usual format. However, we together with our colleagues from RS-APS / HI Jena offer this scientific training event in a modified online version as a combined four-days-series of lectures in the morning and little group work sessions in the afternoon. More detailed information is given below.


October 11-14, 2021

Our joint RS-APS & HGS-HIRe lecture weeks are crossdisciplinary events that cover experimental, theoretical and technical aspects of a particular research field together. This year, the scientific program aims to cover various aspects of novel applications that have been triggered by modern laser technologies. Since this is a rather broad topic, young researchers from other fields of research are invited to participate in this online lecture week, too.

The following subtopics will be addressed by the lecturers:

Foundations and basics principles of modern laser technologies (César Jauregui)
Laser Physics at PHELIX (Vincent Bagnoud)
High Precision Laser Spectroscopy – towards Nuclear Clocks (Peter Thirolf)
Physics of (Laser-)Plasma based accelerator systems (Jens Osterhoff)

A preliminary schedule of the online lecture week is given below.
