Informing Spectroscopists for Over 40 Years

International Thematic Workshop: Advances in Brillouin Light Scattering

12 September 2018 to 14 September 2018

BioBrillouin is a pan-European network established to advance the field of Brillouin Light Scattering (BLS) as applied for life science and biomedical research and applications. Brillouin Light Scattering Spectroscopy involves measuring the inelastic scattered light from thermal vibrations.

The Workshop is organized by the Group of High-resolution Optical Spectroscopy and related Techniques (GHOST), a mixed unit that involves personnel from the Department of Physics and Geology of the University of Perugia and from the Istituto Officina dei Materiali (IOM) of the National Research Council.

The focus of this Workshop will be on the technical capabilities and developments of BLS (including recent advances in micro-focused scanning operation mode), but different topics will be addressed, including: Spin waves in films and multilayers; Spintronic and magnonic devices; Spin-orbitronic effects and topological materials; Elastic properties of single crystals, films and multilayers; Phononic structures and acoustic resonators; Viscoelastic properties of materials; Biological and biomedical samples.
