LIPSS 11th International Workshop

LIPSS 11th International Workshop

Madrid, Spain. 27-29 September 2023

Surface texturing and structuring of materials at the micro and nano scales is an attractive topic for advanced technologies and life applications in a variety of fields including energy harvesting, functional surfaces, medicine, as well as bio and eco-systems. Laser Induced Periodical Surface Structures (LIPSS) are at the heart of several projects conducted throughout many European and international institutions and research labs. Publications on LIPSS related results in a broad range of scientific journals show a consistently growing trend in surface structuring.
We are glad to announce the 11th Int. LIPSS Workshop in Madrid that aims at welcoming all scientists from the laser community, including those from the ion/electron beams community, to share recent progress in LIPSS formation and surface structuring mechanisms through experimental and theoretical approaches. With the technical assistance and support from the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas we hope to offer a beautiful and stimulating environment for the success of this workshop.

Following the previous editions in Bochum (2018), Ljubljana (2019) and Orleans (2022), the eleventh LIPSS Workshop in Madrid will be especially devoted to recent progress and studies on mechanisms formation, considering a wide range of materials (polymers, oxides, metal alloys and compounds, carbon hybrid surfaces…) using various laser sources from short to ultra-short beams pulses. The workshop will also tackle various facets of science and technology of LIPSS, starting with fundamentals and extending to more applied aspects such as large area processing as well as real-life applications and potential implementation in an industrial setting.

This workshop is intended for all researchers, scientists and students working on LIPSS formation at European and international universities, research centers and institutes, as well as in the private sector. Attendees will have the opportunity to bring their questions to leaders in the field of laser-matter interaction for material processing. The workshop will take place in person to provide maximum interaction between participants.

The workshop is free of charge and registration includes coffee breaks, lunches and the workshop’s Gala dinner. A maximum number of 40 attendees can register.
