Lectures will start at 9.00 am of 26th September at P. A. M. Dirac Lecture Hall of Patrick M.S. Blackett Institute at San Domenico
PLEASE CHECK THE PROPOSED SOCIAL PROGRAM ON 29th September.
The Italian Chapter of IEEE Photonics Society organizes the 1st School of Photonics on
Photonic Integration: advanced materials, new technologies and applications
The School will be held at the “Ettore Majorana” Center for Scientific Culture (http://www.ccsem.infn.it), in the small ancient city of Erice in Sicily, from the 25th of September to the 1st of October 2016.
The IEEE Photonics school is organized in collaboration with the Italian Liquid Crystal Society (SICL) as the XXII course in the frame of activities held every year at the International School of Liquid Crystals, one of the scientific advanced schools established in the “Ettore Majorana” Center in Erice.
The school of the Italian Chapter of IEEE Photonics Society is aimed to PhD students and Post-docs in Engineering and Physics in the field of photonics technologies.
Topics of the course encompass advanced material properties, device design, technologies and applications of Photonics in different fields such as telecom, sensing, interconnections, quantum information.
Photonic integration is the key issue of this first course, which involves novel design techniques and fabrication processes to make integrated optic devices and systems for novel industrial products.
Industrial point of view will be also considered indeed. Lectures will be given by international first class scientists coming from prestigious Italian and foreign universities, research centres and industrial laboratories.
Purpose of the course is also to be a forum to trigger new cultural exchanges and foster new collaborations in the field of Photonics.
Students are encouraged to submit a scientific contribution to be presented in the form of a poster during the course.
The best poster will be awarded with an IEEE special prize.
