Welcome to the International Quantum Cascade Lasers School and Workshop 2014
QCLs: 20 years of discoveries  1994-2014

 

The International Quantum Cascade Laser School and Workshop 2014 aims to be a think-tank where top researchers in the field will report on recent exciting developments and brainstorm on promising new directions ranging from questions of basic device physics to applications.

Fundamental physics aspect of Quantum Cascade Lasers as well as technological improvements and applications will be addressed. Key features of the workshop will be international participation, industrial exhibition and an educational tilt for PhD students.
