Dr. Johan Hult, Alan Elder, and Dr. C.F. Kaminski of the Laser Analytics Group attended the 10th international conference on Laser Applications in Chemical and Environmental Analysis, which took place at Incline Village, Lake Tahoe, Nevada, on Feb 5-10, 2006. The conference was hosted by the Optical Society of America and is one of the most highly regarded meetings in the field of laser based analytical sensing applications. Dr. Hult served as member of the programme committee and Dr. Kaminski was general chairman of the conference.
The group presented papers at the conference on topics ranging from microfluidic sensors to laser sensors for engine control. The setting of the conference was spectacular, providing excellent opportunities for academic networking on the skiing slopes of the surrounding mountains!
