ICTP Winter College on extreme optics



The ICTP Winter College was held in February 2018 in Trieste, Italy. This year the ICTP Winter college was mainly dedicated to extreme nonlinear optics, attosecond science and high-field physics. The aim of the Winter College was to offer PhD students a broad training on extreme light science, from ultra short and ultra intense laser pulse generation, to attosecond and Free Electron Laser (FEL) technology, focusing on applications of attosecond pulse generation in atomic and molecular physics, photo-chemistry and nanoscience, and the application of extreme light sources to matter-radiation interactions in general. 

The attendants had the opportunity to participate on tutorials and on hands-on laboratory sessions.
