French-German Workshop on High Energy Laser Terminal Effects 2018 - Call for paper  


The first French-German Workshop on High Energy Laser Terminal Effects will take place on November 22 and 23, 2017 and will be hosted by the French-German Research Institute of Saint-Louis (ISL).

Directed High Energy Laser (HEL) Weapons have already been demonstrated on the field in various con­figurations and scenarios. Their maturity allows for short-terms breakthrough capabilities on the battle­field. HEL weapons relies on the absorption of the electromagnetic laser beam, at infrared wavelengths, leading to a thermal-induced mechanical weaknesses, and ­ finally, mission failure of the target.

Several key questions are of prime relevance on the HEL terminal ballistic effects :

  • Beam energy absorption in heterogeneous structures,
  • Thermo-mechanical degradation kinetics,
  • Vulnerability criterions,
  • Beam quality discrepancy in diffusing and absorbing atmosphere,
  • Laser safety legal and collateral issues.

This workshop shall bring together researchers, operational staff, governmental representatives and industrial experts from France and Germany. It will enable the sharing of current information and we hope that it will facilitate setting up a binational excellence networking community.

Restriction on participation : participation is restricted to the members of french and german companies.

Papers are solicited in the following topics :

  • Laser matter interaction, including dedicated metrology
  • Beam propagation in the atmosphere,
  • HEL safety issues,
  • Military and homeland security doctrines.
