    An introduction to femtosecond laser science, at 2003 Photonics West Conference (San Jose, CA), Tuesday, January 28, 2003:
    Description: This interactively taught half-day course provides basic knowledge of measurements of and research with femtosecond laser pulses. Beginning with the basic principles of the interaction of light and matter, we?ll discuss the often non-standard aspects of the interaction of intense short pulses with matter. Using worksheets we?ll address a number of common conceptual misconceptions in an interactive and collaborative setting.

    Learning outcomes: This course will enable you to

    • understand the basis for the electronic and optical properties of...

    Laser-assisted internal and surface microstructuring of materials, at Army Research Office Workshop on Relativistic and Sub-Relativistic Intensity: Physics and Applications, University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI), Sunday, September 29, 2002:
    The study of laser-induced damage and breakdown of materials is nearly as old as the laser itself. Ranging from investigation of the interaction of lasers with materials to avoid damage to purposefully using the laser as a precise tool to impart damage. This talk presents the research ongoing in our laboratory towards fundamental understanding of damage mechanisms and novel applications of microstructuring processes using femtosecond laser pulses. Three experiments are presented: the use of femtosecond laser pulses in the processing of transparent materials such as glass or diamond, pump-...
