Conference program

International Conference on Ultrafast Optical Science (UltrafastLight-2019), which will be held in Moscow, September 30-October 04, 2019, is the broad-scope, annual international symposium dedicated to the most important aspects of ultrafast phenomena in different fields of natural sciences and engineering. In 2018, our conference was attended by 250 participants from 20 countries, with more than 180 talks.


The Conference topics include:

  1. Extreme light.
  2. Ultrafast phenomena in condensed matter and ionized gases.
  3. Ultrafast laser nanofabrication and nanophotonics.
  4. Femtosecond non-linear optics. Filamentation. High field THz generation.
  5. Femtosecond radiation in photobiology and chemistry.
  6. Physics and technology of ultrafast lasers and ultrashort laser pulses.
  7. Femtosecond radiation in spectroscopy and optical frequency metrology.

There is no participation fee


Conference sessions start with the invited talks (25 min), proceed with the regular oral talks (15 min), and end up by flash talks (3 slides/5 min) and/or poster presentations. You can register as a participant without submitting a talk.

P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute (LPI), Leninskiy prospect 53, Moscow, Russia

The Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (LPI RAS) is one of the largest and oldest scientific research centers of the country. Its scientific program covers almost all major fields of physics. As a modern polyphysical body, the Institute was founded in 1934 by Academician S.I Vavilov, an outstanding optical physicist and science organizer.  The LPI takes its history from a Physical Cabinet established by the Emperor Peter the Great in 1714. Such prominent scientists as D. Bernoulli, L. Euler, M.V. Lomonosov worked at the Physical Cabinet.

The history of the LPI is marked with greatest scientific discoveries, such as the Vavilov–Cherenkov effect, the phase-stability principle, the scientific bases of controlled thermonuclear fusion and quantum generators. Staff members of the Lebedev Physical Institute were repeatedly honoured with the most prestigious international and domestic prizes and awards, including Nobel prizes awarded to I.E. Tamm, I.M. Frank, P.A. Cherenkov, N.G. Basov, A.M. Prokhorov, A.D. Sakharov and V.L. Ginzburg.
