July 7–12, 2019, Moscow will host a major international scientific event: the 20th International Conference on Photoacoustic and Photothermal Phenomena, ICPPP-20.
Photothermics and photoacoustics unite the fields of laser physics, thermophysics, bio- and nanophotonics, materials science, laser medicine, theranostics, analytical and physical chemistry, thermal analysis, and non-destructive testing and evaluation. ICPPP conference series is the major meeting place for scientists, technology developers, and practitioners. These conferences are traditionally the most relevant forum for specialists in these fields.
ICPPP is a scientific and educational platform for researchers and practitioners in related fields and includes schools for young scientists in various branches.
This special issue is planned as a collection of selected papers presented at ICPPP-20. Papers focused on optical technologies for study of biomedical applications of photothermal and photoacoustic (optoacoustic) spectroscopies as well as in fundamentals and methodology of these methods are invited. The special issue will cover following topics:
Biomedical Sciences and Biophotonics – Biomedical Sensing and Cytometry, Biomedical Imaging, Spectroscopy, Microspectroscopy, and Tomography, Imaging-Guided Photothermal Therapy and Theranostics, Biotechnology and Bioengineering Applications.
Chemistry and Earth Sciences – Microfluidics, Analytical and Microanalytical Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Photochemistry, Earth-Sciences Applications, Atmospheric Monitoring, Environmental, Agriculture, and Food Applications.
Fundamentals of Photothermics, Photoacoustics/Optoacoustics, and Related Phenomena – Thermophysical Properties, Laser Ultrasonics, Surface Acoustic Waves, Nanoscale Phenomena and Nanostructures, Ultrafast Phenomena and Spectroscopy.
Methodologies of Photothermics, Photoacoustics/Optoacoustics, and Related Techniques – Instrumentation and New Techniques, Measurement Methodology and Data Processing, Imaging, Multispectral, and Hyperspectral Imaging, Microscopy and Spectroscopy, Tomography, and Depth Profiling.
