Thibault Derrien is our „Rising Star“

144On July 10, 2016, Dr. Thibault J.-Y. Derrien and Dr. Yoann Levy traveled to Venice, Italy for the 5th International School “Lasers in Materials Science” on the Isola de San Servolo, home to Venice International University. The school provided great opportunities for interactions and establishing cooperation with other researchers and colleagues working in similar, yet diverging fields. Thibault Derrien presented  his work on the Role of electron-hole pair dynamics in modification of silicon upon femtosecond laser irradiation. For his excellent work and presentation, he was awarded the 2nd place among “Rising Stars” (Third Year PhD and Post-doc researchers) in the schools poster competition in memory of Prof. Roger Kelly. Yoann Levy’s work was also very highly evaluated. He focused on Temperature relaxation after modulated absorption of femtosecond laser pulse in gold and fused silica in the LIPSS formation regime.

Geohegan (Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA), Antonio Miotello (Trento University, Italy), and Paolo M. Ossi (Politecnico di Milano, Italy). It provided undergraduate students, PhD students and young research scientists with a wide opportunity to learn on fundamental roots of the interactions of laser light with different materials that are usually missed in traditional programs. The attendees were offered 18 lectures from world-leading scientists, ranging from fundamentals of laser-matter interaction to scientific and industrial applications in various fields including new material production and bio-medicine. One of the lectures was given by the HiLASE RP4 Leader Prof. Dr. Sci. Nadezhda M. Bulgakova, Ph.D.
