Research on Shortest Light Pulse, 'Superlens' and More
The shortest light pulse ever created, a new type of laser that provides 3-D retinal imaging with an emerging method called optical coherence tomography (OCT), and a magnifying "superlens" are just some of the breakthroughs in optics and photonics that scientists from around the world will present in papers during the 2007 Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics/Quantum Electronics Laser Science Conference (CLEO/QELS), being held May 6-11 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
With more than 1500 talks on cutting-edge optics and photonics research, leading laser science event CLEO/QELS is where more than 5000 researchers and engineers gather each year to present the latest science and engineering of photons and lightwaves, and this year's conference promises not to disappoint with its many noteworthy presentations.
