Nobel Symposium on Free Electron Laser Research June 14-18, 2015 at <a href="" style=color:#E5E4E4;font-size:12pt>Sigtunahöjden</a>, Sigtuna


Nobel Symposium 158: Free Electron Laser Research is sponsored by the Nobel Foundation through its Nobel Symposia Fund and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, and organised by Stockholm University.

The aim of the Nobel Symposium is to give an overview of free electron lasers from an accelerator physics point of view, and their use in research in the natural sciences.
