About Cairns

Welcome to the VUV14 home page

Time and Place

The Fourteenth International Conference on Vacuum Ultraviolet Radiation Physics (VUV-XIV) will be held on July 19-23, 2004, in Cairns (Australia) at the Cairns Convention Centre.


The conference encompasses all aspects of theoretical and experimental studies of the interaction of ultraviolet and soft X-ray radiation with matter over a photon-energy range from 5 eV to several keV.

Relevant areas of research include atomic and molecular physics, materials sciences, physics, chemistry, biology and the novel instrumentation required to conduct such research. The major tools of investigation such as synchrotron radiation, lasers , laboratory sources, and plasma sources are important topics, as are the associated optics, technology, and analytical techniques.
