Optics, Photonics and COVID-19 by Thomas M. Baer and Christina E. Baer

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads across the world, patients, technicians and scientists depend on state-of-the-art molecular-analysis instruments as they fight against SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing this disease. Optics and photonics technologies embedded in these instruments—such as high-quantum-efficiency multispectral cameras, visible-light laser diodes and LEDs, infrared bolometer arrays, narrowband optical filters and wideband multispectral optical spectrometers—play an essential part in the story.

Extremely High Intensity Laser Physics (ExHILP)

ExHILP 2019, to be held September 3-6, is hosted by the PULSE Institute at Stanford University and co-sponsored by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The conference combines theory, experiment and simulations of laser-matter and laser-vacuum interactions at the highest intensities. This year ExHILP is focusing on Strong Field Quantum Electrodynamics (SFQED) with applications to astrophysics and cosmology, high-luminosity colliders and physics beyond the standard model.
