Thanks for Attending HEDS2019!     See you at HEDS2020?


Organized by

Laser Society of Japan


International 2019 Congress


High energy density sciences based on high power lasers, ultra-high energy particle accelerators, and astrophysics have been boosted recently with the mastering of powerful laser chains that deliver ultra-short and PW class laser beams. High energy particles, femtosecond duration mono-energetic electron beams and x-rays come to reality to give us new fundamental knowledge and unique instruments both for basic researches and for industry. Number of researches in novel directions such as plasma and nuclear photonics, and others, are rapidly growing. Prospects of projects newly opened in US, EU, China, Korea and Japan are of particular interest for discussion.

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON HIGH ENERGY DENSITY SCIENCES 2019 (HEDS2019) is being organized to share information on high energy density sciences and related technologies. The conference will be held at Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama city, Japan, on April 22- 25, 2019 with the sponsorship of Laser Society of Japan, in cooperation with several academic societies and associations. The HEDS2019 is intended to provide a central forum for the update and review of scientific and technical information on high energy density sciences covering a wide range of fields from fundamental sciences to applications.


HEDS2019 covers the high energy density sciences with high power lasers and its application in the following major topical fields;

A. Quantum beam generation with plasma and applications:

Electron, positron, ion, meson, and other exotic particle beams,
X-ray free electron lasers (XFEL)

B. Imaging Technologies:

Ultrafast imaging with particle and radiation sources, novel imaging systems

C. Plasma photonics:

Ultra-strong fields, THz radiation, X-rays, Vacuum polarization,
PW-class laser induced plasma kinetics

D. Nuclear Photonics:

Laser-plasma nuclear physics, Photon-enabled neutron/positron generation and science,
Nuclear astrophysics and cosmology
