Healing wounds with lasers, vehicles that drive themselves, other cutting-edge optics

then focused onto an array of camera pixels. The light level detected on the array thus preserves a recording, over time, of the light beam's intensity.

Heebner's device, which he calls serrated light illumination for deflection encoded recording (or SLIDER), can even be used to study short bursts of light in the X-ray region of the light spectrum. This is accomplished by first encoding the X-ray signal onto an optical beam using an optical device (a Fabry-Perot cavity) that can be modulated at picosecond timescales. This makes SLIDER potentially valuable for monitoring the brilliant bursts of X-rays streaming from fusion targets at the collision point where the multiple laser beams of LLNL's National Ignition Facility (NIF) come together.

The benefit of the device is that it enables the recording of very fast phenomena. As the world's fastest light deflector, it can be used as a picosecond oscilloscope or for observing transient events like the miniature fusion reaction that occurs at the National Ignition Facility.

CLEO/IQEC PLENARY SPEAKERS

Edward I. Moses, the principal associate director of the National Ignition Facility at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, will present "The National Ignition Facility: Exploring Matter Under Extreme Conditions" on Monday, June 1, focusing on NIF technical capabilities, the National Ignition Campaign, and the new scientific opportunities in materials science, astrophysics, and other areas of highenergy-density science made available by NIF.

Federico Capasso, professor of applied physics at Harvard University, will present "Quantum Cascade Lasers: Compact Widely Tailorable Light Sources from 3 to 300 m Wavelength" on Wednesday, June 3, tracing the path from invention to exciting advances in the physics, applications and commercialization of these revolutionary lasers, which cover the mid- and far-ir spectrum and
