Institute of Applied Physics, Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, is pleased to announce that the 10th International Workshop “Strong Microwaves and Terahertz Waves: Sources and Applications” will be held on July 17–22, 2017 on board of a river boat starting from Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.
The Workshop will consist of four strongly interrelated topical symposia:
Symposium S: High power microwave sources;
Symposium H: Current drive and plasma heating by microwaves in nuclear fusion devices;
Symposium T: Extreme and nonlinear terahertz science (metamaterials for strong THz generation and frequency conversion, nonlinear effects in THz frequencies, high power THz sources);
Symposium A: High power microwave and terahertz applications (including accelerators, radars, gas discharges, materials processing, biomedical applications etc.)
This workshop is a continuation of the “Strong Microwaves in Plasmas” workshops held every three years since 1990. The adjusted title reflects gradual changes in the workshop contents towards a broader range of frequencies and applications. The scope of the workshop covers a wide circle of research activities of both fundamental and applied importance. The workshop is highly interdisciplinary in nature; it opens ample opportunities for the interaction between the researchers working in high-power microwave electronics and plasma physics, with strong emphasis on the development of diverse applications. A three-year cycle chosen for the workshop provides the participants with the possibility of accumulating significant results of their research.
