More than 80 researchers and students participated to the meeting.
UCM2018 gathered experts interested in the study of the control of the physical properties of materials with a special focus on ultrafast science. Topics covered during this meeting included recent advances in photoinduced phenomena, non-linear phononics, THz science, elastic cooperativity, strong electric field effects and X-FEL science. The goal of this meeting is to have intense and frank scientific exchanges in a very friendly atmosphere on the emerging topics appearing with new laser-based techniques for controlling and understanding materials at work.
