ILA Short Courses preceding NLS-25 at KIIT, Bhubaneswar

Indian Laser Association (ILA) will be organizing the following two short courses on December 18 and 19, 2016 (immediately preceding the DAE-BRNS National Laser Symposium-25 (NLS-25) during December 20-23, 2016) at Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT), Bhubaneswar, Odisha.

Course I :

Techniques of Ultrafast Spectroscopy and their Applications in Photonic Materials

Course Coordinators: Dr. D.K. Palit, BARC, Mumbai

The above course will cover the following aspects:

  • Principle of generation of light pulses of ultrashort duration, amplification and characterization (ps to fs to as, nJ to J, MW to PW, X-ray to THz, autocorrelation technique.)
  • Techniques of ultrafast spectroscopy and excitation dynamics in molecules and materials (Pump – probe spectroscopy in absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy in the UV-Visible – IR –THz region, X-ray and electron diffraction, Ultrafast excitation dynamics in molecules in gas phase, solutions and nanoaggregates and possible applications in photonics.)
  • Nonlinear optical spectroscopic techniques for investigating ultrafast processes (Second and third order nonlinear effects, Transient gating, transient optical Kerr effect and transient dichroism, Four wave mixing techniques, 2D electronic and vibrational spectroscopy, CARS, photon echo, and VSFG techniques.)
  • Ultrafast Electronic and Structural Dynamics in Solids and Nanostructures (Interaction of ultrashort laser pulses with solids, Relaxation of solids, Coherent and incoherent phonon dynamics, charge transport effects, Heat diffusion in nanostructures, photo-acoustic nanoscience, ultrafast structural dynamics using electron diffraction, Ultrafast magnetization dynamics.)
  • Ultrafast Dynamics Driven by Intense Light Pulses.

Course II :

Recent Advances in Laser Material Processing"

Course coordinators: Dr. A.K. Nath, IIT Kharagpur

The above course will cover the following aspects:

  • Lasers in Material Processing Applications ( Different types of lasers for material processing applications and laser material interaction- effects of wavelength, intensity & pulse duration)
  • Laser Cutting (Fiber laser cutting of thick plates, striation-free cutting and underwater laser cutting)
  • Laser Welding (Conduction, keyhole and hybrid welding, welding of dissimilar materials)
  • Laser Surface Engineering (Laser surface transformation hardening; Surface remelting, alloying, and cladding)
  • Laser Additive Manufacturing
  • Laser Metal Forming (Basic mechanisms, 2D and 3D forming, & modelling)
  • Laser Shock Peening
  • Laser Drilling, Marking & Surface Texturing
  • Laser Micro-machining & Nano- Fabrication
