The Optical Society of the USA convention on purposes of excessive Fields and brief Wavelength assets, held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, united states, from March 20-22, 1997, was once a really intriguing convention. This convention was once the 7th in a sequence of topical con­ ferences, held each years, that are dedicated to the iteration and alertness of excessive box and brief wavelength resources. The assembly was once actually foreign in scope, with equivalent participation from either inside and out of doors of the U.S.. long ago years, there was dramatic development in either laser and x-ray coher­ ent assets, either primary and utilized. The 1997 assembly highlighted those advances, that are summarized in sections 1 and a couple of of this quantity. Terawatt-class lasers at the moment are avail­ capable within the UV or at excessive repetition charges. Michael Perry (LLNL) offered a keynote speak on petawatt type lasers and their purposes in inertial confinement fusion, whereas Jorge Rocca (Colorado country collage) provided a keynote speak on tabletop soft-x-ray lasers. Genera­ tion and size innovations have gotten very subtle in the course of the UV and x­ ray zone of the spectrum, and coherent assets were prolonged to wavelengths less than 30A. part keep watch over within the x-ray area can also be now attainable, and new phase-matching schemes within the UV were experimentally proven. it truly is transparent new box of x-ray nonlin­ ear optics will deveiop speedily over the following couple of years.
