New Laser Scientists Conference
The DLS sponsored the 8th New Laser Scientist Conference (NLSC), a 1½ day mini-conference for new faculty and scientists doing laser related research, in conjunction with the October, 2014 FiO/LS meeting of the OSA/DLS in Tucson, AZ. The NLSC helps to establish a peer group for new laser scientists in the DLS and includes roundtable discussions as well as interactions with past funding program managers. This conference is designed to benefit new faculty and scientists who are within a few years of their first permanent appointment. NLSC-8 was coordinated by Dan Gauthier (Duke University) and Jason Jones (University of Arizona).
The 9th NLSC will take place on October 17-18 in conjunction with the 2016 FiO/LS meeting in Rochester NY. For more information, or to nominate a colleague, please contact Jason Jones (University of Arizona) or Thomas Weinacht (Stony Brook University).
