    ICAN Workshop 3 &4 - Driver &Optical Fibre

    from June 18, 2012 to June 19, 2012
    Friedrich Schiller Universität Jena - Germany

    The next two ICAN workshops will take place in Jena, Germany on 18th and 19th June 2012.
    The topics of the workshop will be:
    - WS3 — Driver (Applications for Highest peak power fiber laser systems)
    - WS4 — Fibers
    Despite this, the discussion will be continued about a possible laser architecture, main components and possible funding strategies for first demonstration.

    The workshop will take place at the Fraunhofer IOF Jena travel maps and directions are attached.
