This conference provides a forum for those interested in the development, understanding, application and commercialization of photosensitive materials and their optical applications. The objective is to provide an interdisciplinary meeting in which optical engineers and physicists can interact constructively with both material scientists and chemists and those involved in the application and commercial use of such materials. Those attending will have the opportunity to hear talks from leading researchers in the field, presenting their state-of-the-art research in the context of providing solutions to real world problems.

Photosensitive materials typically exhibit a chemical, electrical, or other response to light. Interacting with electromagnetic radiation their exposed regions attain properties that are distinctively different from those of non-exposed regions. Thus, exposure results in temporary or permanent changes to their solid-state, molecular and/or inter-facial properties leading to a controllable modulation of material properties such as refractive index or conductivity, thickness, density, photo-conductivity, photo-luminescence, photon energy conversion, or photo-catalysis. Such changes can then be used to modulate the amplitude, phases, polarization and spin characteristics of replaying light and matter fields.

Topics will include but not be limited to:

  • material characterization, testing and modelling
  • impacts of materials on device and system modelling and optical performance
  • chalcogenide and phase change materials for use in data storage and photonics applications
  • nanocomposite, micro/nano-structured and low dimensional materials for photonics applications
  • photorefractive materials for photonics/sensing applications
  • photosensitizers and dyes
  • photopolymers, azo polymer, photochromic materials, liquid crystals, thermo-plastics, resins and photo-thermo-refractive glasses for holographic/memory/lithographic applications and optical components/devices
  • novel and emerging materials, such as meta-structured, Epsilon-Near-Zero and plasmonic materials for photonics applications.
