Advanced Photonics

The 2014 OSA Advanced Photonics Congress took place 27 - 31 July. To ensure you hear about future Advanced Photonics Congresses, email

Advanced Photonics examines multiple aspects of propagation (both linear and nonlinear) in fibers; the construction of fibers and fiber structures specialized for various applications including sensing, nonlinear propagation, new fiber materials and fiber/light coupling. The meeting on Sensors addresses the construction and performance of optical sensing techniques and devices, including fiber sensors, laser and imaging sensors, chemical, biological and medical probes, and terahertz sensors.  Finally, Nonlinear Photonics will involve novel nonlinear materials and structures, as well as nonlinear photonic devices and systems.

Joint Poster Sessions
Monday, 28 July and Tuesday, 29 July
Posters are an integral part of the technical program and offer a unique networking opportunity, where presenters can discuss their results one-to-one with interested parties. Each author is provided with a board on which to display the summary and results of his or her paper.

Symposium on Surface Functionalization of Optical Fiber and Waveguide Based Bio- and Chemical-Sensors (Joint BGPP and Sensors)

Tuesday, 29 July
The aim of this Symposium is to bring together chemists, biochemists, and photonic device designers to explore together how best to functionalize optical fiber devices to detect biochemical substances and chemicals with high sensitivity, selectivity, and robustness, while lowering the limit of detection to levels that will allow real applications to be developed.  For more information visit the Symposium page.
