Symposium Scope

The symposium on Structured Optical Materials and Devices will focus on recent developments in the broad area of hard and soft materials which can alter or control electromagnetic radiation in the ultraviolet, visible or infrared spectral regions. Such materials are able to refract, reflect, transmit, disperse, polarize, detect and transform radiations in the wavelength region of 200 nm to 2000 nm. In general, constitution of the materials determines the mode and strength of interaction with the electromagnetic radiation. Based on such definition, optical materials include soft polymeric, hard inorganic or hybrid organic-inorganic materials with interesting transparencies and refractive indices.

The current symposium will include topics such as:

  • Synthesis and manufacturing methodologies on optically active materials
  • Materials for linear and nonlinear optics
  • Materials used in photovoltaic applications
  • Optical waveguide materials
  • Optical sensory materials
  • Materials for meta-material realization
  • Inorganic/organic hybrid materials
  • Lithography and other structuring techniques
  • Optical materials in medical and bioimaging
  • Characterisation techniques for optical materials
  • Optical devices
