SUMMARY
From lasers so powerful that they can rip atoms apart, to light so precise it can see the bonds inside DNA, there is no area of science which isn't being driven forwards by our mastery of optical fields.

In this theatre and livestream talk, physicist Amelle Zaïr will guide us through the world of ultra-fast, ultra-powerful lasers, and the radical discoveries they have enabled us to make about the world.

This is a truly international field of science, with teams of world experts coming together to build incredible machines, and solve critical problems in science, technology, healthcare and industry.

SPEAKER
Amelle Zaïr is a Lecturer in advanced photonics in the Physics Department at King’s College London. She is Head of Ultrafast Laser Sciences and Attosecond Physics.

Following her postdoctoral studies, Amelle was awarded an EPSRC CAF fellowship in 2011 and she built her own group at Imperial College London where she led two novel investigation lines:  capturing  attosecond dynamics in atoms and molecules using attosecond quantum path interferometry,  and  new generation of high repetition rate Yb femtosecond laser for high repetition rate attosecond physics.

TIMING
The live stream will go live at 6.55pm, and the introduction will begin at 7.00pm. If you register but miss the live stream, the video will be available to you via the same link for up to a week after the event date.
