International Conference on Ultrafast Optical Science

30 September - 02 October, 2024

P.N.Lebedev Physical Institute of RAS

VIII International Conference on Ultrafast Optical Science

Second call - 2024

Dear colleagues!

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the next VIII International Conference on Ultrafast Optical Science (UltrafastLight 2024) which is scheduled to be held in early October 2024 in Moscow, Russia. The conference is organized by P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute Russian Academy of Sciences. By establishing this conference 7 years ago we aimed to create a new tradition of productive exchange on broad-scope important aspects of ultrafast optical phenomena on annual basis. We are waiting for honored and young leaders to come and find new, intriguing innovative and creative solutions for ultrafast optical effects.


The conference program covers the following main topics:

  1. Extreme light
  2. Ultrafast phenomena in ionized gases, semiconductors and metals
  3. Ultrafast laser technologies and structured light in micro-optics and nanophotonics
  4. Diamond photonics
  5. Frequency combs in spectroscopy and optical clocks
  6. Ultrafast optical technologies and nonlinear optical phenomena
  7. Ultrafast laser technologies in biomedicine

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.
