Integrated Photonics Research, Silicon and Nano-Photonics (IPR)
- 14 - 17 July 2013
Rio Mar Beach Resort, Rio Grande,
IPR- By continuing a long-standing tradition of excellence in bringing together experts from both academia and industry for an open discussion of cutting-edge research, trends and problems, IPR 2013 will focus on photonics devices and integration, nanophotonics and its applications, and also computational photonics and device modeling.
IPR 2013 topics will include photonic integrated circuit design, technology and applications; physics and technology of on-chip active and passive photonic devices; planar waveguide technology, lightwave circuits and systems-on-the chip; theory, modeling and numerical simulation of waveguide and integrated photonic devices and circuits, as well as various topics of computational photonics; integrated diffractive optics and micro-photonics. Also, IPR 2013 will continue to cover emerging topics in nano-photonics, including generation, detection, transport and utilization of optical fields on the “nanoscale” as well as the emerging area of research as it relates to various aspects of slow light, including basic physics, implementation and potential use in integrated photonics.
Application areas within the scope of this meeting are very broad and include, but are not restricted to: optical tele- and data communications; optical interconnects, switching and storage; optical computing, data and information processing; optical monitoring and sensing and much more. On the material system side, traditional III-V semiconductor photonic devices and integrated circuits; silicon based devices and waveguide circuitry; silica on silicon and polymer photonic lightwave circuits – are all within the scope of IPR. Contributions relating to new materials and technologies, e.g. sub-wavelength silicon on insolator and metallic nano- structures, are also of interest.
