    ICOAM 2015 Program Now Available

    ICOAM 2015

    The Third International Conference on Optical Angular Momentum (ICOAM) 2015 will provide a forum for scientists whose work relates to optical angular momentum (orbital and spin), aiming to identify new developments and directions in the field, both at the fundamental and applied levels.

    Optical angular momentum has received recent and significant interest in a myriad of scientific fields including applications in optical fiber, free space, and quantum communication, optical trapping, biomedical photonics, and super-resolution imaging. Optical angular momentum will inevitably be at the foundation of our society's future technologies.
