Advanced Architectures in Photonics 2014

21st – 24th September 2014, Prague, Czech Republic
Diplomat Hotel**** Prague

"AAP 2014 covers topics on science, technology and applications of micro‐ and nano‐structured materials used in optics and photonics."

Topics

PREPARATION OF PHOTONIC MATERIALS AND DEVICES

  • design, synthesis, purification and processing of optical materials
  • self-assembly growth and low-cost fabrication techniques
  • thin film deposition and nano-patterning of material surfaces
  • drawing techniques for microstructured optical fibers, fabrication of waveguides, multilayers, spheres, ... 

LIGHT CONFINEMENT IN OPTICAL WAVEGUIDES, MICROSTRUCTURED FIBERS, SPHERES, PHOTONIC CRYSTALS AND STRUCTURED SURFACES

  • non-linear effects: self-phase modulation, four-wave-mixing,
    two-photon absorption, Raman and Brillouin scattering,
    super-continuum generation and laser emission,  rare-earth doped devices for photon up- and down-conversion, surface plasmons generation

CHARACTERIZATION AND MODELING OF THE OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF STRUCTURED PHOTONIC MATERIALS

  • measurements and calculations of the optical properties of structured materials and devices
  • design of new functional optical, photonic, plasmonic devices and metamaterials

APPLICATIONS

  • optical sensing in industry, medicine, security and defense
  • optical and chemical sensing based on surface enhanced effects
  • enhanced performance of optical devices and elements
  • new light sources and non-linear effects
  • laser emission from micro- and nano-structured materials
  • applications of photonic crystals and metamaterials
