Research in Applications of Optics and Photonics is continuously evolving with remarkable and exciting recent developments in a variety of fields, all over the world.
The Portuguese Society for Research and Development of Optics and Photonics, SPOF, in its aim of promotion of the development of Optics and Photonics, in general and particularly in Portugal, is organizing a major conference in this subject. The conference will be held at Braga’ campus of the University of Minho on May 3 to 7, 2011.
In an open friendly environment, this forum will be an excellent opportunity to increase the external visibility of participant’s research works and to establish sound mutually beneficial cooperation relationships among research institutions, the industry, higher education institutions and scientific societies committed to the promotion of Optics and Photonics and of its impact in the development of our societies. The exhibit area apart from the display of scientific and technical equipment, will host boots of research labs and industries in order to promote and facilitate the setting-up of future new collaborations. Optics and photonics industries will be invited to actively participate in the conference. A special session will be held gathering representatives of the industry and researchers.
Open to contributions in all topics of Optics and Photonics and application’ fields, with this conference we expect to set the state-of-the-art in the subject foreseeing the lines of development on next decade.
All fields and topics of applications of optics and photonics will be covered:
Applications in archeology, Applications in the industry, Astronomy, Atmospheric Optics, Bioengineering and biological applications, Biomedical Optics and Photonics, Color, Diffractive Optics, Electro-Optics, Environmental Optics, Fiber Optics and telecommunications, Green photonics, Holography and Interferometry advances, Image Digitalization and Processing, Instrumentation, Laser propulsion, Lasers and LEDs, Luminescent solar concentrators, Femtosecond and Lifetime measurements, Laser metrology, LIBS, LIDAR, Light-Matter Interaction, Metrology, Microscopy, Nanophotonics, Nanophotonics in Medicine, New light sources, Non-Linear Optics, OLED, Ophthalmic Optics, Optical Coatings, Optical Design, Optical Metrology, Optical Processing, Optically powered fiber networks, Optics and biofuels, Optics and photonics applications in Industry, Optics for medical diagnosis and treatment, Optics in the Preservation of Cultural Heritage, Optics in chemical analysis, Optics Industrial Processes, Optoelectronics Materials and Devices, Opto-Mechatronics, Optometry, Photovoltaic systems, Photonic Crystals, Plasmonic solar cells, Polymer and paper photonics, Quantum Optics, Sol gel, Solar energy, Spectroscopy, Spontaneous emitting devices, Thin Films, Vision, Others.
