C17: Laser Physics and Photonics

The Commission on Laser Physics and Photonics (C17) was established by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics in 1975 (as Quantum Electronics) to promote the exchange of information and views among the members of the international scientific community in the general fields of Laser Physics, Photonics and Quantum Electronics.
