Digital Holographic Interferometry (DHI) plays an important role in the
evaluation of object static and dynamic displacements. The state of the art
research on this technique is such that it is being used to solve problems in a
wide variety of disciplines, from basic Physics to engineering and even social
sciences. This invited plenary talk will deal with specific applications in some
biomedical objects, even showing preliminary results using Electron Holography.

To say that atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) physics underwent a revival in
the 80s and 90s is to acknowledge that it was in need of reviving. Prior to this
rebirth, high-quality research was being done in many labs, but it was primarily
passive with respect to atomic motion. The demonstration of laser cooling in
1978 ushered in a new era where the full quantum states (internal and external)
of atoms would be precisely controlled in the following decades. This control

When rockets and space-bound vehicles are fired into space, they have to deal
with turbulence, winds and waves in the Earth's atmosphere. Different height
regimes cause different problems. In the lower regions (0 to 20 km altitude),
winds and turbulence are major issues, whereas above 50 km altitude, large
atmospheric waves have serious importance on safe passage. Similar issues arise
on re-entry. In this talk, I will discuss the ways in which these atmospheric
phenomena manifest themselves, and how they are best mitigated. One example of

Impacts of asteroid and comets constitute major geologic processes shaping the
surfaces and evolution of planetary bodies. Impacts produce deep transient
cavities, with excavation to deep crustal levels, fragmentation, and removal of
large rock volumes. Formation of complex craters involves high pressures and
temperatures resulting in intense deformation, fracturing and melting. Here, we
analyze the crater-forming impacts and their effects on the Earth´s climate,
environment and life-support systems, in relation to the Cretaceous/Paleogene
