2Physics Quote:
"Lasers are light sources with well-defined and well-manageable properties, making them an ideal tool for scientific research. Nevertheless, at some points the inherent (quasi-) monochromaticity of lasers is a drawback. Using a convenient converting phosphor can produce a broad spectrum but also results in a loss of the desired laser properties, in particular the high degree of directionality. To generate true white light while retaining this directionality, one can resort to nonlinear effects like soliton formation."

Upcoming Physics Conferences

From today we start this feature on suggestion from some of our physicist friends. If anyone wishes to freely advertize Physics jobs or conferences in 2Physics, he/she is welcome to put an entry and a web-link following our 'comment' link that can be found at the bottom of any of our postings. From time to time we'll publish the list. Our today's list is for conferences only.

July 18-21: "Quantum reality, relativistic causality, and closing the epistemic circle: an international conference in honour of Abner Shimony" (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada)
July 20-21: "Teaching General Relativity" (Syracuse)
July 23-29: "Eleventh Marcel Grossmann Meeting on General Relativity" (Berlin)
Jul 31-Aug 4: "Cosmic Frontiers" (Durham, UK)
August 1-4: "1st international workshop on transmission of information and energy in nonlinear & complex systems " (Singapore)
August 6-11: "Intl congress on mathematical physics" (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
August 7-15: "Key Approaches to Dark Energy" (Barcelona, Spain)
August 24-26: "Quantum Gravity in Americas" (Pennstate)
August 25-29: "3rd Feynman festival" (College Park, Maryland, USA)
September 3-12: "International advanced summer school on modern mathematical physics: theoretical cosmology and observational status of modern cosmology" (Dubna, Russia)
September 7-9: "Maxwell 150 Years On" (Aberdeen, UK)
