Welcome to HPDLS | 2017
A co-located meeting at Photonex, the UK’s largest showcase event dedicated to photonics and light technologies.
Advances in diode lasers and diode pumped lasers continue unabated as the range of applications increases. These advances are reflected in the current drive to develop kW-class direct diode laser systems. At the same time, advances in diode pump lasers continue to contribute to advances in solid state and fibre lasers. This conference, the 8th in the series, enjoys a growing reputation for showcasing the most significant recent advances in both the technology and the applications of high power diode laser systems – and for stimulating cross-sectorial and cross-disciplinary technical exchanges. The Conference includes an international programme of invited speakers, who are well positioned to discuss recent advances and current challenges in the field.
The papers from the 2015 event may be reviewed on the IEEE Xplore Digital Library website:
INVITED SPEAKERS IN 2015

Comment on the 2015 Conference The programme chair is Professor Eric Larkins from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Nottingham. “This is an exciting time for high-power diode lasers, with advances being made in brightness, beam combining and the development of kW-class direct diode lasers for industrial applications. Having seen an increase in delegate numbers year on year, we are delighted that we are holding this event for the eighth time alongside the UK’s premier networking/showcasing event for photonics research and technology.”
