Topical group seminars

Advanced diagnostics

Convener: Edouard Berrocal

The presentations are 30-40 min long and starts as usual at 12:15 at the Division of Combustion Physics room E421. Some food and drink will be served. The intention of these seminars is to provide talks that are educational yet with high-quality science in the field of laser and X-ray diagnostics. The main idea is to exchange knowledge among researchers from the Lund Laser Centre working in different fields where various diagnostic techniques are applied for different applications.
