Abstract:

The 8th meeting of the International Symposium on High Power Laser Ablation was held in Santa Fe NM 18 -22 April 2010. This report describes the conference in detail and includes the book of abstracts. AFOSR partially supported the conference. Eighteen countries were represented 51 oral papers and 44 poster papers were presented in 14 sessions. Sessions covered laser-matter interaction physics and modeling, short-pulse laser-matter interactions, nanoprocessing and engineering of materials, laser propulsion, plume dynamics, alkali halide, optically pumped and oxygen-iodine lasers, space applications and PLD, MAPLE and processing of advanced materials. A unique panel session on the topic What are the issues we should be putting more effort on in terms of understanding andor overcoming technological roadblocks was held.
