Lecture Title: Laser remote sensing from the millimeter to the kilometer range”
Abstract: Laser spectroscopy applied in different scales from mm to km range has revolutionized many areas of research, and also had major impact in the environmental, biomedical and cultural heritage. Fluorescence monitoring has many applications in environmental (marine, terrestrial and airborne research), biomedical/biophotonic (i.e. tumor treatment) and cultural heritage research (restoration of historical buildings)
Short Bio: Sune Svanberg obtained his PhD from University of Gothenburg in 1972, and is since 1980 professor of physics at Lund University, Lund, Sweden. During 30 years he was head of the Atomic Physics Division, and during 20 years director of the Lund Laser Centre. Since 2011 he is also a distinguished professor at the South China Normal University, Guangzhou. He is a member of the Royal Academy of Sciences (and during 10 years a member of its Nobel Committee for Physics; two years as chairman), and the Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences. His research interests include laser spectroscopic applications to the environmental, food safety and biomedical fields.
