About LSSE2022

Welcome to LSSE2022

We are pleased that you have joined to attend to Laser Solutions for Space and the Earth (LSSE 2022). This is the 7th conference of LSSE organized as a part of the OPTICS & PHOTONICS International Congress (OPIC 2022). The aim of “Laser Solutions for Space and the Earth” is to discuss the application of emerging laser technologies to solve various problems for sustainable developments of space and the Earth.

 We will organize the special session dedicated to the laser and other technologies, “Anti-COVID-19 (Examination of infection and Sterilization) ”, “Agri-photonics (Smart agriculture, Laser plant factory and Laser sense organ)”, “Space technology (Laser debris deorbit and UV imaging)”, “Industrial application (Extreme condition, Robotics, Processing, Remote sensing and LIBS)”, as the featured topics of the year 2022.

Taking into account the covid-19 pandemic situation, the session will take place at PACIFICO Yokohama Japan, a venue where infection control for COVID-19 has been taken. In addition, online presentation and listening will also possible.We hope you could enjoy the inspiring discussions in the many research fields in our conference, as we did in the last six conferences.

We are looking forward to seeing you in April.

    “Topics of JAEA Advanced Science Research Center for industrial application (tentative)” Industrial application

    Extraction process is efficiently advanced by emulsion flow. To apply this technology to industrial uses widely, a JAEA venture company has been established in 2021. And in order to make nuclear physics understood widely, we can use a nuclear chart  to summarize the research history of nuclear physics. Cloud funding in JAEA was authorized for this purpose. Abovementioned two topics will be presented.

    “Rising laser surface cleaning in nuclear engineering (tentative)” Industrial application

    LDD is now developing laser surface cleaning technologies to apply it to nuclear engineering. Two topics are presented here. Firstly, laser cleaning was tested on a rusty drum tank to storage radioactive waste for its life extension. The result will be very effective for management of its long term storage. Secondarily, surface clad containing radioactive materials was blow out by laser cleaning to be less than 1/1000 contamination level. It will be useful for cleaning mechanical equipment which has been left in the wilderness of Fukushima prefecture.
