The workshop highlights hot and emerging topics in the fields of Multiphoton Tomography/Microscopy, Time Resolved Fluorescence, and Multiphoton Material Processing.
The German PhD student Maria Göppert predicted two-photon effects in Göttingen in 1928. Her first paper was submitted Oct 28 with the title “Über die Wahrscheinlichkeit des Zusammenwirkens zweier Lichtquanten in einem Elementarakt” (“On the probability of two light quantum working together in an elementary act”). In 1930, she finished the PhD thesis under supervision of Max Born, married the American Mayer and published the thesis in 1931 under the name Maria Goeppert-Mayer. She described in these two famous papers the possibility of two photons being absorbed simultaneously at a high concentration of photons in time and space. Maria Goeppert-Mayer became the second female Nobel laureate in physics in 1963.
