The word "photonics" appeared in the late 1960s and is commonly accepted to describe the science of generating, controlling, and detecting light. In recent years many exciting possibilities associated with the dramatic progress of fabrication technologies have appeared in photonics and many new are generated every day in research labs all over the world.
In the busy schedule of congresses, symposiums, conferences and workshops devoted completely or partially to nano-photonics it is a hard job to decide which one suits your needs at best.
Topics include theoretical and numerical studies of different aspects of light generation, control and detections in micro- and nano-structured materials, including but not limited to general inhomogeneous media, plasmonic structures, metamaterials, biological systems, photonic crystals, integrated optics components and systems.
The workshop will take place in the historical house of the "Physikzentrum Bad Honnef", Bad Honnef, Germany. The "Physikzentrum" is ideally suited for the workshop purposes and provides accommodation and state of the art presentation facilities.
