13th conference on Laser-light and Interactions with Particles (LIP2020)

Website: http://lip-conference.org/

Host institution & dates: Institute of Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IF-PAS)- August 22-28th, 2020, Warsaw, Poland

Abstract deadline: March 1st, 2020


Dear Colleagues,

The 13th international conference series on Laser-light and Interactions with Particles (LIP) - Optical Particle Characterization follow-up will be organized by the Institute of Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IF-PAS) on August 22-28th, 2020, Warsaw, Poland. The conference is focused on interactions between laser beams and particles, from theory to practice, encompassing in particular the following fundamental topics : particle characterization methods (interferometric, holographic, polarimetric, spectral, static,dynamic,...), near-field, far-field and time-resolved scattering, plasmonics and other resonances, complex shaped particles and aggregates, multiple scattering and random media (dense, turbulent,...), mechanical effects of light (particle manipulation, force measurement, optical tweezer,...), laser beams description (contributions acoustical and quantum beams are also welcomed) and application domains: two-and multiphase-flow characterization ( combustion, spray, bubbly flow...), aerosol science and atmospheric environment (nucleation, transport,characterization...), plasma and soft matter physics (nanocristallites, Coulomb crystals, colloids, aggregation, ,...), remote sensing (lidar, communication,...), biomedical optical engineering (cell manipulation and properties, micro rheology, ...)


Proceedings (with ISBN) will be edited and a special issue on LIP topics is foreseen in JQSRT.

Hoping to see you in Warsaw!


Best regards, F. Onofri, G. Gouesbet, D. Jackubczyk & M. Kolwas (Conveners of LIP2020 )
