Synopsis 

Continuing education is an essential need in modern society, in particular for those involved with new technologies. Optics and photonics are no exceptions. There is a constant need to train and retrain optical engineers who have existing professional experience, but need to adjust to new technologies or broaden their scope to increase their capacity for innovation. The challenge in Optics and Photonics, in fact, is broader than in some other domains, because of the considerable diversity of optical technologies and of the many fields of applications. This one-day workshop will gather together training providers, employers and potential trainees with various experience of the process of continuing education.

TOM 1 - Biophotonics: Optical Manipulation and OCT Imaging in Life Sciences and Medicine (EOSAM 2012)

Location: 
Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, Scotland (UK)
Duration: 
25 September 2012 - 27 September 2012
Submission Timeframe: 
20 August 2012 - 26 August 2012

Synopsis

In biophotonics optical tools are employed for the understanding and treatment of diseases, from the cellular level to macroscopic applications. At the cellular level, highly precise laser applications allow the manipulation, poration or stimulation of cells, even in living organisms or animals, like for example in optogenetics. Using fusion proteins, precise imaging and, in case of channelrhodopsin, precise switching of living cells in their environment is enabled and allows a deeper understanding of cellular processes. Furthermore, optical microscopy has been revolutionized by a thorough understanding of the different markers and their switching behaviour. Marker-free microscopy, like CARS, SHG or THG-microscopy is spreading into multiple biological and clinical imaging applications. Combination with microfluidics and chip-based technologies enables high-throughput for screening or manipulation applications.

TOM 5 - Organic Photonics & Electronics (EOSAM 2012)

Location: 
Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, Scotland (GB)
Duration: 
25 September 2012 - 28 September 2012
Submission Timeframe: 
20 August 2012 - 26 August 2012

Synopsis

Organic semiconductors are a broad class of materials that comprise small molecules, conjugated polymers and carbon based nano-structures. The molecular structure of such materials in many cases permit charge transport, efficient light-harvesting, the existence of stable excitations and high fluorescence quantum efficiency; attributes vital for a number of optoelectonic applications such as light emitting diodes, photovoltaics and field effect transistors. By defining structure at sub-micron wavelength into organic media (either semiconducting or dielectric), the interaction between light and matter can be exploited to engineer novel effects. Here, a number of target applications have been identified including optical-sensors, lasers, optical-amplifiers, fibre-based communication systems and novel coatings.

TOM 2 - Silicon Photonics (EOSAM 2012)

Location: 
Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, Scotland (GB)
Duration: 
25 September 2012 - 28 September 2012
Submission Timeframe: 
20 August 2012 - 26 August 2012

Synopsis 

Novel developments and applications in the field of silicon photonics and related areas, ranging from optical interconnects to sensing applications will revolutionize conventional microelectronics. Potential topics include, but are not limited to the design, simulation, modeling and fabrication of optical inter-connects (board to board, chip to chip or on chip), e.g. active optical cabels (AOCs), optical on chip routing architectures, clock distribution and tech-nologies as well as related design concepts for high speed, low power photonic integrated circuits (PICs). Also (CMOS-compatible) optical sources and de-tectors and the optimization of light emission and absorption for data processing using materials such as SiGe or III/Vs etc. will be discussed. Advanced monolithic or hybrid processing techniques for the fabrication of photonic structures on Si such as 3D-Laser-lithograhy, nano-imprint techniques or self assembly  will be considered. Following the developments described above, optical on chip data processing all the way to optical computing may lead to disruptive technologies to be discussed at this topical meeting.

TOM 3 - Nanophotonics & Metamaterials (EOSAM 2012)

Location: 
Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, Scotland (GB)
Duration: 
25 September 2012 - 28 September 2012
Submission Timeframe: 
20 August 2012 - 26 August 2012

Synopsis

Both nanophotonics and optical metamaterials rely on our understanding of light-matter interaction on the nanoscale. Recent developments in this broad field are based on nanostructured dielectrics, semiconductors and metals and lead to applications and devices in which electromagnetic fields can be generated, manipulated and controlled in sub-wavelength structures. Nanophotonics and metamaterials pave the way to many novel applications in various technological areas spanning from biosensing and high-resolution imaging to optical information processing and energy harvesting. This Topical Meeting will cover all experimental and theoretical aspects of light interaction with nanoscale objects and nanostructured materials, new optical properties of nanostructured matter and their applications.

Optical devices which incorporate liquids as a fundamental part of the structure can be traced as far back as the 18th century where rotating pools of mercury were put forth as a simple technique to create smooth spherical mirrors for use in reflecting telescopes.  The evolution of modern microfluidics has enabled the development of a present day equivalent of such devices centered on the marriage of fluidics and optics which has come to be known as Optofluidics. EOSOF 2011 is held under the umbrella of the WORLD OF PHOTONICS CONGRESS 2011 (22 - 26 May 2011).
