The 6th International Symposium on Laser Ultrasonics (LU2018) brings together world leading researchers in Laser Ultrasonics, Phononics and light-matter-sound interactions. The symposium is dedicated to the latest scientific results, methodological and technological advancements, and applications of Laser Ultrasound.

Following on from LU2016, a special industry day will be organised for end users of laser ultrasound technology.  This will provide an opportunity for end users in industry and the clinic to meet with produces of laser ultrasound technology.

There will be social events in order to promote informal discussion and networking among the participants as well as events for early stage career development.

We look forward to meeting you at the 6th Symposium on Laser-Ultrasonics LU2018 in Nottingham.

Organised by the IOP Physical Acoustics group

Co sponsored by the IOP Optical group


It has been brought to our attention that attendees have been approached by a third-party company, Exhibitor Housing Services (EHS), claiming to be a 
representative of a hotel "Premier Inn Nottingham City Centre Goldsmith Street", asking to provide credit card information to reserve a hotel room for the LU2018 conference. This phone call was later followed by an emailed document to be completed and emailed to ops@ehsrooms.com.

It is strongly noted that the IOP or LU2018 has no affiliation to EHS, the mentioned hotel, or any other accommodation in Nottingham, aside from Cripps Halls of Residence based at the University of Nottingham. If you suspect any fraudulent communication in relation to this conference, or have any questions please contact priscilla.lim@iop.org.
