Photonics and Laser Symposium PALS'15

The 7th Finnish-Russian Photonics and Laser Symposium PALS'15 will be held at the Saratov State University (, Saratov, 22 – 25 September, 2015 to continue and extend success of the previous symposia held in Saratov (2003), Kajaani (2005), Moscow (2007), Tampere (2009), St. Petersburg (2011), and Kuopio (2013).

PALS'15 has become an important event attracting leading researchers in the field of the photonics and laser physics from Finland and Russia. The invited lectures, oral and poster presentations that will be distributed in six major modules:

  • Fundamental aspects of the light-matter interaction
  • Nano- and microoptics
  • Biophotonics
  • Plasmonics
  • Nonlinear optical spectroscopy
  • Advanced sensing

The Symposium is aimed at PhD students, post-doctoral and young researchers from Finland and Russia in the first instance. They will be able to establish direct contact with leading scientists and their colleagues working in the field of photonics and laser physics.

PALS'15 is organized by the International Laser Center of Lomonosov Moscow State University, Saratov State University, University of Oulu, University of Eastern Finland, and the Russian Academy of Sciences' Institute of Biochemistry and Physiology of Plants and Microorganisms (IBPPM RAS), with support of the Europian Optical Society.
