Hyderabad: Indian Institute of Technology-Hyderabad will be hosting an international workshop on ‘Laboratory Astrophysics with Intense Laser: Particle Generation and Application’ on December 7-8. It is being organized by Dr. Vandana Sharma, Associate Professor, Department of Physics, IIT Hyderabad, in association with the University of Oxford UK, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, and Central Laser Facility.
The workshop covers broadly the two topics like Intense Laser Physics – Generation and its Applications and Laboratory astrophysics with Lasers. The last date to register is November 25. Participants from different parts of the world will present results on laser particle generation, acceleration, detection and secondary emissions, and their applications.
Dr. Vandana Sharma, the Conference Coordinator, said at the meet, “a different aspect of the interaction of Lasers, called Laboratory Astrophysics wherein an active synergy between laboratory experiments and theoretical modeling along with astronomical observation will be presented. The workshop will be held virtually for two days and is composed of invited specialized lectures, student talks, and poster presentations.”
