The 2011 Cross Border Workshop on Laser Science was held at the University of Rochester in June.

Thank you to everyone who attended! We look forward to seeing you at the 2012 meeting, hosted by McGill University, Montreal, Canada.

The workshop focuses on advances in quantum optics, nano-optics, nonlinear optics, bio-photonics, coherent control, molecular imaging, optical engineering and intense field physics.

The workshop is intended to foster interaction between students and leading experts in laser science in an informal setting. Graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to participate in the workshop to be exposed to laser-related research outside their usual field of study. 
All attendees are welcome to share their latest work by presenting a poster

Following tradition, the workshop's timing enables researchers and students along the Great Lakes region to drive to Rochester and participate in the workshop. It was held at the University of Rochester's River Campus
