An introduction to femtosecond laser techniques: Part 1, at XIII Escola de Verão Jorge André Swieca de Ótica Quântica e Ótica Não Linear, Instituto de Física de São Carlos (São Carlos, SP, Brazil), Monday, January 23, 2012:
This interactively taught half-day course provides basic knowledge of the measurements of and research with femtosecond laser pulses. Beginning with the basic principles of the interaction of light and matter, we'll discuss 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.

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-...

An introduction to femtosecond laser techniques, at 2005 SPIE Photonics West Conference (San Jose, CA), Sunday, January 23, 2005:
General Course Description: This interactively taught half-day course provides basic knowledge of the measurements of and research with femtosecond laser pulses. Beginning with the basic principles of the interaction of light and matter, we'll discuss 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.

Stopping Time, at Public Lecture, University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras (San Juan, PR), Tuesday, March 6, 2001:
Time is of philosophical interest and is also the subject of mathematical and scientific research. Even though it is one of the most familiar concepts, the passage of time remains one of the greatest enigmas of the universe. The Platonist Augustine has said: 'What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who who asks me, I do not know.' The concept time can indeed not be explained in simple terms. Emotions, life and death all are related to our interpretation of the irreversible flow of time. The more we think about it, however, the more unclear the... Read more about Stopping Time

Stopping Time, at Kay Malmstrom Lecture in Physics, Hamline University (St. Paul, MN), Friday, May 5, 2006:
Time is of philosophical interest as well as the subject of mathematical and scientific research. Even though it is a concept familiar to most, the passage of time remains one of the greatest enigmas of the universe. The philosopher Augustine once said: "What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks me, I do not know." The concept time indeed cannot be explained in simple terms. Emotions, life, and death - all are related to our interpretation of the irreversible flow of time. After a discussion of the concept of time, we will review... Read more about Stopping Time
