13–16 April 2015 Conference EOO113: Medical Applications of Laser-Generated Beams of Particles: Review of Progress and Strategies for the Future

Prague, Czech Republic

Oral and poster presentations are solicited in the following areas of research but are not limited to: 

  • the development of high power lasers for proton and ion therapy
  • identifying the laser parameters necessary to produce protons and ions suitable for cancer treatment
  • laser-produced monochromatic x-rays for diagnostics
  • inverse Compton/Thomson scattering x-ray sources and compact laser driven hybrid synchrotron sources
  • laser and target technology for producing monoenergetic ion beams
  • transport and focusing of laser driven ion beams
  • radiobiology and cell damage studies using laser-produced proton beams
  • laser-driven medical isotope production
  • medical applications with laser-accelerated electron beams
  • plasma simulations of laser driven secondary sources of radiation
  • advances in diagnostic techniques to characterise and control laser produced ion and photon beams
  • critical comparison of conventional and anticipated laser accelerators for producing secondary sources suitable for medical applications.
