The 15th Laser Ceramic Symposium


15th Laser Ceramics Symposium (LCS), 13-15 September, 2019, Zakopane, Poland

International Symposium on Transparent Ceramics for Photonic Applications is an annual international conference since 2005. The aim of the symposium is to provide a forum for material scientists, chemists and physicists, to discuss the state of the art of optical transparent ceramics, including basic aspects and promising applications, and to give an insight into future advances and research possibilities in this field.

The previous LCS events were held in Poland (2005), Japan (2006), France (2007), China (2008), Spain (2009), Germany (2010), Singapore (2011), Russia (2012), South Korea (2013), Poland (2014), China (2015), France (2016), Russia (2017) and Japan (2018).

The symposium program will include invited talks as well as contributed (oral and poster) presentations. We hope that the symposium will bring together leading experts from around the world, will stimulate active discussions and links between scholars and will give a brilliant opportunity for the participants to start further fruitful research collaborations.

We hope you enjoy the Symposium, and take full advantage of the scientific sessions, networking opportunities and planned social events.
