OµS'13 is the 5th edition of the international conference wholly dedicated to optical microsystems organized by the European Optical Society (EOS) and the Italian Society of Optics and Photonics (SIOF), Italian Branch of the EOS.
An optical microsystem can be defined as a complex system, able to perform one or more sensing and actuation functions, taking advantage of the progress in micro- and nano-technologies to integrate in a smart way optical devices with electronic, mechanical and sensing components. The increasing interest in this field arises from the perspective applications that would significantly improve the quality of life. The list of possibilities offered by these enabling technologies is very long and seems to increase day by day. Optical microsystems are finding applications not only in ICT, but also in biotechnologies, medicine, food and environmental monitoring, aerospace and automotive, homeland security, etc.
The conference programme will focus on fundamental as well as more applied topics. Biosensors, biochips and lab-on-chip, microfluidic and optofluidic systems, non-linear and quantum optical devices, silicon-based optoelectronics and MOEMS, chemical and physical optical microsensors, new characterization methods for materials and devices, novel imaging techniques, biomimetic devices and systems are among the hot topics of the conference.
