FEMTO10 - The Madrid Conference on Femtochemistry

Frontiers of Ultrafast Phenomena in Chemistry, Physics and Biology
July 10-15, 2011
Madrid, Spain

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to send the Second Announcement of FEMTO10, The Madrid Conference on Femtochemistry.
FEMTO10 is the 10th Edition of the Femtochemistry Conference series and will take place in Madrid, Spain, from 10th to 15th July 2011. The venue will be the Universidad Complutense de Madrid campus, very close to Moncloa commercial area in Madrid and just 15 minutes by Metro from downtown, where all museums and other touristic attractions can be found.
The series of biennial FEMTO Meetings started in 1993, when the first Conference was held in Berlin (Germany). Since then the conference was held in Laussane (Swiss), Lund (Sweden), Leuven (Belgium), Toledo (Spain), Paris (France), Washington DC (USA), Oxford (UK), Beijing (China) and now it comes to Madrid (Spain).
FEMTO10 will bring together scientists from all over the world to present and discuss the most recent advances in Femtosciences, including reaction dynamics, coherent control, structural dynamics, solvation phenomena, liquids and interfaces, fast processes in biological systems, strong field processes, attosecond electron dynamics and aggregates, surfaces and solids with contributions from both theory and experiment.
The Conference format will include invited lectures, hot topics, and poster sessions. The participation of young researchers and students is particularly welcome. Some posters will be promoted to oral presentations upon recommendation of the Scientific Committee.
The day of arrival is Sunday, July 10, 2011, with registration during the afternoon and a reception in the evening. The program starts on Monday, July 11, 2011 with an opening lecture by Professor Ahmed H. Zewail. The Conference will finish on the 15th at midday, after a closure session.

Femtosecond Transient Absorption Measurements system Hatteras Hatteras-D femtosecond  transient absorption data acquisition system
Future nanostructures and biological nanosystems will take advantage not only of the small dimensions of the objects but of the specific way of interaction between nano-objects. The interactions of building blocks within these nanosystems will be studied and optimized on the femtosecond time scale - says Sergey Egorov, President and CEO of Del Mar Photonics, Inc. Thus we put a lot of our efforts and resources into the development of new Ultrafast Dynamics Tools such as our Femtosecond Transient Absorption Measurements system Hatteras. Whether you want to create a new photovoltaic system that will efficiently convert photon energy in charge separation, or build a molecular complex that will dump photon energy into local heat to kill cancer cells, or create a new fluorescent probe for FRET microscopy, understanding of internal dynamics on femtosecond time scale is utterly important and requires advanced measurement techniques.

Beacon Femtosecond Optically Gated Fluorescence Kinetic Measurement System - request a quote  - pdf
Beacon together with Trestles Ti:sapphire oscillator, second and third harmonic generators. Femtosecond optical gating (FOG) method gives best temporal resolution in light-induced fluorescence lifetime measurements. The resolution is determined by a temporal width of femtosecond optical gate pulse and doesn't depend on the detector response function. Sum frequency generation (also called upconversion) in nonlinear optical crystal is used as a gating method in the Beacon femtosecond fluorescence kinetic measurement system. We offer Beacon-DX for operation together with Ti: sapphire femtosecond oscillators and Beacon-DA for operation together with femtosecond amplified pulses.
