We organized the first edition of the "Ultrafast Control of Materials" school and symposium at the University Rennes 1 from Monday 11th to Thursday 14th June 2018.


More than 80 researchers and students participated to the meeting.

UCM2018 gathered experts interested in the study of the control of the physical properties of materials with a special focus on ultrafast science. Topics covered during this meeting included recent advances in photoinduced phenomena, non-linear phononics, THz science, elastic cooperativity, strong electric field effects and X-FEL science. The goal of this meeting is to have intense and frank scientific exchanges in a very friendly atmosphere on the emerging topics appearing with new laser-based techniques for controlling and understanding materials at work.
