Abstract : The conference will cover progress in all areas of infrared and millimeter waves, including the following topics, with special emphasis on new fields of research. (1) Sources: lasers, free electron lasers, gyrotrons, synchrotrons, frequency mixing, calibration and standards. (2) Detectors: receivers, mixers, amplifiers, thermal and photon detectors, Schottky diodes, Josephson and SIS devices, imaging arrays, FET amplifiers. (3) Guided propagation and components: waveguides and other structures, Gaussian beams, integrated devices, optical fibres. (4) Spectroscopic techniques: interferometric, laser and heterodyne spectroscopy. Spectroscopy of solids, liquids and gases. (5) Astronomy and atmospheric physics: techniques, results and interpretation. Applications in biology and medicine. Plasma interactions and diagnostics. Technical and industrial applications: imaging, remote sensing, non-destructive testing.
