We are pleased that you have joined to attend to Laser Solutions for Space and the Earth (LSSE 2021). This is the 6th conference of LSSE organized as a part of the OPTICS & PHOTONICS International Congress (OPIC 2021). 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 against the pandemic due to the covid-19 virus, inviting two keynote lectures of Prof. Yoshihide Hayashizaki (RIKEN) and Prof. Yoko Aida. We also featured “Agri-Photonics (Smart agriculture and Laser plant factory)”, “Infrastructure (Non-destructive T esting and Laser- Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy)”, “Active Remote Sensing (Extreme Condition and Industrial Application)” and “Space Technology (Laser Debris Deorbit and UV imaging)”, as the featured topics of the year 2021.
Taking into account the covid-19 pandemic situation, the session will take place via a remote conference system.
We hope you could enjoy the inspiring discussions in the many research fields in our conference, as we did in the last five conferences. We are looking forward to seeing you in April.
Conference Chair, Toshikazu Ebisuzaki (RIKEN)

Keynote Lectures

Monday, 19 April, 13:05-14:05
Yoshihide Hayashizaki, RIKEN Preventive Medical Innovation Program
‘Rapid Detection system for new coronavirus’
Abstract: The key to recovering economic activity from the long-term period of Covid19 pandemic is how to safely hold events, transportation, meetings, and so on. We have developed a system that can detect the new coronavirus in about 20 minutes. An important point in conducting a test for new coronavirus is to perform a time-stamped snapshot test. In my speech, I would like to introduce a few examples of our experiences to prevent cluster formation.

Monday, 19 April, 15:30-16:30
Yoko Aida, The University of Tokyo
‘Light-based disinfection for SARS- COV2’
Abstract: Light-based technologies, such as LED-TiO2 photocatalytic reaction and UVC light, effectively inactivate SARS-CoV-2 by different mechanisms. Therefore, these tools could potentially save people from the risk of infectious diseases.
