The 9th Tiny Integrated Laser and Laser Ignition Conference 2023 (TILA-LIC 2023) will be held on 19 – 21 April 2023 in Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan.

Tiny Integrated Laser and Laser Ignition Conference (TILA-LIC) is the international forum for discussions on various aspects of the ubiquitous sources and phenomena associated with highly intense laser pulses. TILA-LIC offers to share information on sciences and technologies related to Giant Micro-photonics.

“Tiny Integrated Laser (TILA)” means the compact integration of highly intense laser devices and peripheral systems that enables ubiquitous operation of extraordinarily accurate measurements and control of extreme material phases. Here, the word “laser ignition (LI)” originally means the laser induced breakdown ignition, and it also implies the induction of phenomena caused by the irradiation of high-brightness laser pulses.

Based on the recent photonic innovation called by Giant Micro-photonics, ubiquitous lasers symbolized by TILA that can be operated at everywhere and anytime by everybody can become the door to promote the world to a new generation.
