The School and symposium on "Ultrafast Control of Materials“ will be held in Rennes (France). The goal 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.
UCM aims at gathering 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 will include recent advances in photoinduced phenomena, non-linear phononics, THz science, strong electric field effects and X-FEL science. This international meeting will be held at the Pôle Numérique Rennes Beaulieu from Monday 11th to Thursday 14th June 2018.
Attendance will be limited to 80 participants.
A social event is planned for Thursday 14th: an excursion to Saint-Malo town with dinner in a restaurant intra-muros.
Challenges in ultrafast control of materials and emergence of functions
- Ultrafast photoinduced phenomena and non-linear phononics: Electronic vs structural dynamics switching function
- Governing bistability in materials by photoinduced elastic field: Cooperative transformation and non-volatile memory
- Switching Correlated material by light or electric-field: Toward strong field physics
- Ultrafast techniques: X-FEL science, THz science, Pump-probe techniques
