Welcome!

We would like to invite you to participate in a forthcoming VI Workshop on Physics and Technology of Semiconductor Lasers which will be held in Kraków, Poland, 11-15 October 2015.

Our Workshop is an annual meeting that gathers Polish community of semiconductor laser technology and guests from abroad. It is intended to provide a forum for presentation of recent results in the field of physics and technology of semiconductor lasers, as well as to transfer the knowledge and the expertise to younger scientists.

The workshop is organized jointly by the Institute of High Pressure Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences (Unipress) and the Centre of Nanophotonics of Institute of Electron Technology.

The workshop will be organized as a combination of plenary lectures given by worldwide recognized experts and short contributed oral presentations. The organizers especially encourage young scientists to participate in the workshop.
