the hot developement of excessive strength lasers, providing femtosecond pulses of 20 2 intensities as much as 10 W/cm , has ended in the invention of latest phenomena in laser interactions with subject. At those huge, immense laser intensities, atoms, and molecules are uncovered to severe stipulations and new phenomena happen, equivalent to the very swift multi photon ionization of atomic platforms, the emission via those platforms of very excessive order harmonics of the fascinating laser gentle, the Coulomb explosion of molecules, and the acceleration of electrons on the subject of the rate of sunshine. those phenomena generate new behaviour of bulk subject in extreme laser fields, with nice power for large ranging functions which come with the examine of ultra-fast methods, the improvement of high-frequency lasers, and the research of the homes of plasmas and condensed subject lower than severe stipulations of temperature and strain. specifically, the idea that of the "fast ignitor" method of inertial confinement fusion (ICF) has been proposed, that is in response to the separation of the compression and the ignition levels in laser-driven ICF. the purpose of this path on "Atom, Solids and Plasmas in Super-Intense Laser fields" used to be to compile senior researchers and scholars in atomic and molecular physics, laser physics, condensed subject and plasma physics, so that it will evaluation contemporary advancements in high-intensity laser-matter interactions. The path used to be held on the Ettore Majorana foreign Centre for medical tradition in Erice from July eight to July 14,2000.
