International Smposium: 20 years Nano-Optics

19.09.2017, 08:00

Symposium, September 19-21 2017, Erlangen

In the past twenty years many research fields have met at nanometer cross roads. Scientists from very different disciplines such as physical chemistry, biophysics, applied optics, solid state physics, or quantum optics have explored and developed new experimental systems and methods such as surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy, scanning near-field optical microscopy, spectroscopy of single molecules, quantum dots and color centers, superresolution fluorescence microscopy, plasmonics and photonic crystals. The symposium gathers many of the pioneers of these research areas, which gave birth to the vibrant field of Nano-Optics. The meeting aims to present a historical understanding of how Nano-Optics emerged and what its current and future trends might be.

Confirmed Speakers: Thomas Ebbesen, Shanhui Fan, Jean-Michel Gerard, Jean-Jacques Greffet, Stephan Hell, Satoshi Kawata, Gerd Leuchs, Mikhail Lukin, William Moerner, Lukas Novotny, Michel Orrit, Oskar Painter, Dieter Pohl, Claus Seidel, Richard van Duyne, Niek van Hulst, Jörg Wrachtrup, Eli Yablonovitch, Yoshihisa Yamamoto

Attendance is free of charge, but registration is mandatory due to limited space.
Registration is open until July 3rd 2017.


Twenty stipends (travel and lodging) will be provided to young scientists. Please send applications including CV, statement of purpose and a letter of reference until July 3rd 2017 to sandoghdar-office(at)mpl.mpg(dot)de
