An NSF-sponsored Summer Institute on Laser Micro/Nano Manufacturing Processes will take place from June 1 - 4, 2010, in Evanston, IL. Deadline for Fellowship applications is March 31; deadline for registration is April 1.
Lasers have been increasingly used in fabricating/shaping micro- and nano-features on various engineering and bio-materials. Since its introduction some forty years ago, lasers have spawned many applications in manufacturing, measurement strategies, and medical procedures. The objective of this short course is to provide attendees with a balanced review of principles and applications, as well as recent research trends. The Institute will cover laser fundamentals, modeling, laser diagnostics and applications in micro-, nano-manufacturing, bios and chemistry.
- Laser Optics and Laser-Matter Interactions
- Material Molding: Solidification, Phase Transformation, Microstructure Evolution
- Near-Field Nanomanufacturing
- and many others
