CLEO/Europe-EQEC 2019
23 – 27 June 2019 | Munich, Germany

International conference to highlight new frontiers in lasers, photonics and optical science across a wide range of technical areas.

The CLEO®/Europe-EQEC conference series has a strong tradition as a comprehensive and prestigious gathering of optics and photonics researchers and engineers in Europe.

With technical co-sponsorship provided by the European Physical Society (EPS), the IEEE Photonics Society (IPS) and the Optical Society (OSA), CLEO®/Europe reflects a strong international presence in the complementary research traditions of laser science, photonics and quantum electronics.

More specifically, CLEO®/Europe emphasizes applied physics, optical engineering and applications of photonics and laser technology whereas EQEC emphasizes basic research in laser physics, nonlinear optics and quantum optics.

CLEO®/Europe will showcase the latest developments in a wide range of laser and photonics areas including laser source development, materials, ultrafast science, fibre optics, nonlinear optics, terahertz sources, high-field physics, optical telecommunications, nanophotonics, biophotonics.

EQEC will feature the fundamentals of quantum optics, quantum information, atom optics, ultrafast optics, nonlinear phenomena and self-organization, plasmonics and metamaterials, fundamental nanooptics, theoretical and computational photonics.

This combination provides a unique forum to obtain informative overviews and discuss recent advances in a wide spectrum of topics, from fundamental light-matter interactions and new sources of coherent light to technology development, system engineering and applications in industry and applied science.

CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2019 conference is Europe’s largest conference on photonics and related research fields. The program features plenary lectures by Michal Lipson from Columbia University on Silicon Photonics, and by Anton Zeilinger from the Austrian Academy of Sciences on Entanglement. The overall program is considerably larger than in previous years, with 8 keynote and 6 tutorial speakers, and over 80 invited talks within the different topics. Furthermore, the conference will feature 12 short courses, more joint symposia fostering interdisciplinarity and interaction with other fields In 2019 new lecture halls will be made available, improving conditions for oral sessions and allowing for more comprehensive poster session program.

Coinciding with the 50-year anniversary of integrated optics, the CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2019 conference will feature a special joint symposium on this topic with a tutorial presentation by John Bowers from UC Santa Barbara. Highlighting young talent, the 2019 Young Scientist Prize (YSP) will be awarded at the conference.

PhotonIcs & Electromagnetics Research Symposium
also known as Progress In Electromagnetics Research Symposium
17-20 June 2019 | Rome, Italy

PIERS2019 Rome Focus/Special Sessions
SC3: Glass Photonics: Novel Systems and Ongoing Applications
Organized by Dr. Anna Łukowiak (Institute of Low Temperature and Structure Research, PAS) and
Dr. Maurizio Ferrari (IFN-CNR CSMFO Lab.)

Session's Information:
Glass Photonics represents the technological pillar of a huge number of photonic applications covering Health and Biology, Structural Engineering, Environment Monitoring Systems, Lighting, Laser sources or Quantum Technologies. The aim of the session “Glass Photonics: Novel Systems and Ongoing Applications” is to have a broad spectrum of robust presentations highlighting the novel outcomes of Glass Photonics in the aforementioned scientific and technological areas. What is expected is to promote the optimal conditions for a multidisciplinary and synergic event where glass-based photonic systems, materials, structures, and devices are discussed. We await for communications looking at Glass Photonics ongoing applications and immediate and long-term solutions that are considered necessary for the society wellness. Research concerning but not limited to fibers, integrated systems, waveguides, resonators, nanostructures, glass-ceramics, colloids, functionalized glasses, luminescent structures, up-down converters, light sources, and photons management are welcome in this session.

8th International Workshop on Photoluminescence in Rare Earths (PRE'19): Photonic Materials and Devices
4-6 September 2019 | Nice, France

PRE’19 is the eighth event in the series of International Workshops covering a wide range of research topics concerning the properties and applications of rare-earth ions in optoelectronics and photonics. The series begun in Trento, Italy in May 2005 (PRE’05), followed by PRE’07 again in Trento, PRE’10 in Firenze (Italy), PRE’12 in Kyoto (Japan), PRE’14 in San Sebastián (Spain), PRE’16 in Greenville (USA) and PRE'17 in Roma (Italy).

The Photoluminscence in Rare Earths: Photonic Materials and Devices (PRE) workshop aims to provide a global forum for material scientists, chemists and physicists to discuss and debate the state of the art and future perspectives of rare earth based materials for optoelectronic and photonic applications. Both fundamental photoluminescent materials, properties, and applications are considered.

More than 700 scientists and students from more than 30 countries, in total, have attended the previous Workshops. The average size of each event, around 100 people, makes for a collegial environment where students and world experts can mingle and talk in an informal and effective way.

You are cordially invited to participate in PRE'19 to be held on 4-6 September 2019 in Nice, France. We welcome you to submit your most recent findings and join the community of scholars advancing the field of light emission based on rare-earth doped materials.

Looking forward to meeting you in the French Riviera !

Grande finale del progetto “Esploratori della Fotonica”

posted Oct 12, 2018, 2:11 AM by Stefano Varas

Grande finale del progetto “Esploratori della Fotonica” con il concorso vinto dagli studenti dell’ Istituto “Alcide Degasperi” di Borgo Valsugana guidati dalla prof.ssa Monica Ropele con l’esperimento “Il mondo della luce e la luce nel mondo”

Giovedì 11 ottobre gli alunni dei licei Da Vinci e Galilei di Trento, Rosmini di Rovereto e Degasperi di Borgo Valsugana si sono sfidati a suon di esperimenti sulla Luce presso il MuSe.

Il concorso ha concluso un percorso durato un anno svolto nell’ambito del progetto ESFO, coordinato da Andrea Chiappini, ricercatore dell’Istituto di Fotonica e Nanotecnologie IFN-CNR e finanziato dalla Fondazione Caritro.

Il progetto ha visto protagonisti insegnanti e studenti e si è articolato in workshop di formazione per gli insegnanti all’utilizzo di nuove metodologie didattiche e in seminari tematici e visite programmate presso i laboratori di IFN-CNR e FBK, partner di progetto, con l’obiettivo di approfondire concetti teorici e confrontarsi con le tecnologie impiegate nel mondo della ricerca.

Oltre ad aver visto premiato il lavoro svolto con i propri insegnanti, il pomeriggio al MuSe è stato per i ragazzi occasione di scambio di esperienze e di confronto di idee e risultati, da presentare ad altri istituti scolastici, alle famiglie e ad un pubblico generico.

Il gruppo di studenti vincitore è stato premiato con il kit didattico We Lab, offerto dalla ditta DNA Phone, che rappresenta una soluzione innovativa per la misura di parametri chimici e biologici mediante l’uso di dispositivi ottici connessi a piattaforme smart e mobile e con un trofeo offerto dalla Società Italiana di Ottica e Fotonica (SIOF).
