International Conference on Ultrafast Optical Science

September 28-October 02, 2020

P.N.Lebedev Physical Institute of RAS

IV International Conference on Ultrafast Optical Science



Dear participants of the "UltrafastLight-2020"!


In view of the persisting restrictions due to the pandemic of COVID-19 the Organizing Committee of "UltrafastLight-2020" decided to hold a mixed (online and offline) conference. The offline part of the Conference will take place at Lebedev Physical Institute as usual. Online participation implies giving a talk via videoconference or (in agreement with the Organizing Committee) sending the video of a talk.


We consider online options preferable for the participants for whom coming to Moscow is impossible. Moreover, we kindly ask participants with any symptoms of cold to choose the online version so as not to endanger their health and the health of others.


We remind you that the length of the talks are as follows:

plenary talk - 30 minutes for a talk, 10 minutes for questions;
invited talk - 20 minutes for talk, 5 minutes for questions;
oral talk - 10 minutes for talk, 5 minutes for questions;
flash talk - 5 minutes, 3 slides, no questions.


We are looking forward to seeing you at our Conference!



IV International Conference on Ultrafast Optical Science (UltrafastLight-2020), which will be held in Moscow, September 28-October 02, 2020, is the annual broad-scope international symposium dedicated to the most important aspects of ultrafast phenomena in different fields of natural sciences and engineering. 


Conference Program


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. Frequency combs in spectroscopy
    and optical clocks
  6. Physics and technology of ultrafast lasers and ultrashort laser pulses.

There is no participation fee

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.


Our conference is the supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, project #20-02-22038.
