The Lord of the Rings: the Graphene Match

As in the books of JRR Tolkien, the Research Group of Laser Applications and Photonics (ALF-USAL) continues their adventure in the search of the Ring. After finding the Phase-Matched Ring in Argon based High-Harmonic Generation [1], now they’ve gone a step beyond to find the Phase-Matched Ring in graphene. It turns out that when a graphene


The National Meeting of Optics of the year 2021 (RNO2021) will take place next week from November 22 to 24. In this online event that has more than 240 registered people and 19 sponsors, more than 200 scientific contributions will be presented. The National Meeting of Optics (RNO) is a triennial congress organized by the

EUCYS 2021 – European Union Competition for Young Scientists (September 16 – 19, 2021)

The European Union Competition for Young Scientists, better known as “EUCYS”, awards and celebrates the best young scientific talent in Europe. Every year, the contest brings together promising young scientists from across Europe and beyond to present their projects to an international jury. Although the 32nd edition should have been held in Salamanca in 2020,

Postdoc: Theory of Structured Attosecond Pulses Applied to Ultrafast Magnetism

The University of Salamanca (Spain) invites applications for a 3-years postdoc position starting in October/November 2021. The position is part of the project ATTOSTRUCTURA, “Structured attosecond pulses for ultrafast nanoscience”, funded by the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program (grant agreement No. 851201), supervised by Dr. Carlos Hernández-García, and with a
