Photonics and Laser Symposium (PALS) 2007 is an international joint meeting between Finnish and Russian Universities and Research Centers. The first Russian-Finnish PALS was held in Saratov (Russia), the second - in Kajaani (Finland).
Traditional topics of PALS are «Laser Physics and Nonlinear Optics», «Bio- and nanophotonics», «Precision Laser Measurement and Sensing», «Application of Lasers for Monitoring of Paper Quality and Production». The scientific program of PALS 2007 will be expanded by the sections «THz spectroscopy» and «Optics of Microstructured Fibers». This year we also plan to organize the Poster Session in which the works subjected to a wide range of Photonics and Laser Physics problems can be presented.
PALS 2007 is aimed at both the establishment of collaboration between Russian and Finnish Research Centers resulting in joint projects in the fields of Photonics and Laser Physics.
