BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA, and CARDIFF, UK — Technologies enabling the capability to control and manipulate light at the nanoscale promise powerful new applications for energy, medicine, communications, and other crucial areas of modern life. The SPIE Nanoscience and Engineering symposium held as part of SPIE Optics + Photonics later this month in San Diego will spotlight reports and updates on the field’s latest advances from leading international researchers.
Conferences and a three-day exhibition run 28 August through 1 September in the San Diego, California, Convention Center.
With more than 1,000 presentations, SPIE Nanoscience and Engineering has become the largest international symposium focused on nanoscience, nanoengineering, and quantum science.
New this year is a conference on UV and Higher Energy Photonics chaired by Gilles Lérondel of the Université de Technologie Troyes, Satoshi Kawata of Osaka University, and Yong-Hoon Cho of KAIST.
Several plenary speakers will report on emerging technologies and materials for nanoscale research and applications:
Among keynote and invited talks on the latest advances:
Symposium chairs are Harry Atwater, California Institute of Technology, and Nikolay Zheludev, University of Southampton and Nanyang Technological University. Symposium co-chairs are David Andrews, University of East Anglia, and James Grote, Air Force Research Lab.
Nanoscience and Engineering is one of four symposia at SPIE Optics + Photonics, also including Optics and Photonics for Sustainable Energy, Organic Photonics and Electronics, and Optical Engineering and Applications.
SPIE Optics + Photonics offers a three-day free-admission exhibition, industry sessions on commercialization, a market update on photonics-enabled technologies and R&D and other topics, an extensive suite of professional development courses in fundamental and advanced technologies, and numerous networking opportunities.
More details including registration information are on the event website. Registration prices increase after 12 August.
SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, an educational not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based science, engineering and technology. The Society serves nearly 264,000 constituents from approximately 166 countries, offering conferences and their published proceedings, continuing education, books, journals, and the SPIE Digital Library. In 2015, SPIE provided more than $5.2 million in support of education and outreach programs. www.spie.org
