    Call for Papers

    The 11th international conference on Infrared Optoelectronics: Materials and Devices (MIOMD-XI) will be held at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois (near Chicago) from the 4th to the 8th of September 2012. MIOMD-XI will bring together scientists, engineers and end-users from around the world who are working in the rapidly advancing area of infrared optoelectronics. This science and technology plays a vital role in many critical modern applications such as medical imaging, industrial failure analysis, target acquisition and tracking, thermal imaging, standoff chemical-specific imaging, LIDAR, and free-space communication. This conference will explore new topics and address the rising challenges facing infrared emission, detection, and systems development. It provides an opportunity for researchers, end-users, and vendors to share their latest achievements, exchange information, foster collaborative relationships, and explore future directions.
