Asia Communications and Photonics Conference (ACP) & International Conference on Information Photonics and Optical Communications (IPOC)

Special Session 2: Mid-IR lasers and Applications

Mid-infrared (Mid-IR) lasers have experienced substantial progress in the past decade for various emerging applications. Mid-IR wavelength coincides with the molecular resonant peaks, namely molecular fingerprints, which makes Mid-IR lasers useful for spectroscopic and biomedical applications. In addition, with a large ponderomotive force, few-cycle Mid-IR pulses serve as the idea tool for strong-field physics and ultrafast electronics science. This special session aims to bring together researchers from diverse backgrounds to create synergy in this important research area.
