Ultrafast Phenomena at the Nanoscale 2014

July 11-13th 2014



The Femtosecond Spectroscopy Unit invites you to a post-Ultrafast Phenomena 2014 workshop on Ultrafast Dynamics in Nanoscale Systems to be held at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, Graduate University (OIST) on July 11-13th 2014. OIST is the premier interdisciplinary graduate school established in Nov. 2011 in the resort of Onna-son, Okinawa. The purpose of the meeting is to provide a focused forum for the discussion of the leading research in the field of ultrafast phenomena in solid-state systems, and to highlight the related research at OIST. A tour of the laboratory facilities will be provided on Friday afternoon, and cultural activities will be organized on Sunday afternoon.
