Laser Society of Japan


International 2017 Congress


High energy density sciences based on high power lasers, ultra-high energy particle accelerators, and astrophysics have been boosted recently with the mastering of powerful laser chains that deliver ultra-short and intense laser beams. Strong vacuum polarization, high energy particles, femtosecond duration mono-energetic electron beams and x-rays come to reality to give us new fundamental knowledge and unique instruments both for basic researches and for industry. Prospects of projects newly opened in USA, France, UK, Germany, and Japan are of particular interest for discussion.

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON HIGH ENERGY DENSITY SCIENCES 2017 (HEDS2017) is being organized to share information on high energy density sciences and related technologies. The conference will be held at Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama city, Japan, on April 18- 21, 2017 with the sponsorship of Laser Society of Japan, in cooperation with several academic societies and associations. The HEDS2017 is intended to provide a central forum for the update and review of scientific and technical information on high energy density sciences covering a wide range of fields from basic sciences to applications.


HEDS2017 covers the high energy density sciences with high power lasers and its application in the following major topical fields;

A. Quantum beam generation and applications:

Electron, positron, ion, meson, and other exotic particle beams,
X-ray free electron lasers (XFEL),

B. Imaging Technologies:

Ultrafast imaging with particle and radiation sources, novel imaging systems

C. Plasma photonics:

Ultra-strong fields, THz radiation, X-rays, Vacuum polarization,
PW-class laser induced plasma kinetics
