Coherent Raman Scattering Microscopy (microCARS2010)

466th WE-Heraeus-Seminar

October 18 – 20, 2010, Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany

The main objective of microCARS2010, held in Bad Honnef 18-20 October 2010, was to ascertain scientific exchange between experts who have already significantly contributed or will participate in the further development of Coherent Raman Scattering (CRS) microscopy beyond current levels of detection sensitivity, spatial resolution, and information content. By building on the success of the first European Conference on Coherent Raman Scattering Microscopy (microCARS2008) held in Austria in 2008, this meeting has highlighted present frontier research in different areas of optical physics and coherent Raman spectroscopy, ranging from nonlinear optics, optical microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, femtosecond pulse shaping and coherent control schemes. Furthermore, microCARS2010 stimulated innovative, interdisciplinary and broad scientific collaborations in the realization of compelling applications of CRS microscopy in the material and life sciences, thus exemplifying its full potential.

This seminar was kindly supported by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation.
