Novel Optical Materials and Applications

Novel Optical Materials and Applications

24 - 27 July 2017
Astor Crowne Plaza, New Orleans, Louisiana United States

Addresses new, cutting-edge research in optical materials and applications spanning the transmission spectrum from UV through terahertz.
NOMA is intended as “one comprehensive” conference which focuses on all types of optical materials, which are the key to advances in optical applications. The focus is on advances in design, fabrication and applications of optical materials from ultraviolet to terahertz and their utility for a variety of applications, including the most recent advances in materials for nanoscale devices, imaging systems, lasers, optical waveguides and fibers, solar energy, and sensors as well as any other emerging applications.

Student & Early Career Professional Development & Networking Lunch and Learn

Tuesday, 25 July, 12:30 - 14:00
Toulouse A

Join us for an interactive lunch and learn program focused on professional development within the Advanced Photonics field. This program will engage students and early career professionals with the key leaders in the field who will share their professional development journey and provide useful tips to those who attend. Lunch will be provided.

Programs are open to OSA Members. There is limited space and we ask that you RSVP to attend.

Emerging Optical Materials: Perovskites, 2D Optical Materials and Nanocolloids

Wednesday, 26 July, 12:30 – 14:00
St Charles B
Join the OSA Optical Material Studies Technical Group for a panel discussion exploring new and emerging optical materials. The panel will feature Dr. Barry Rand of Princeton University, Dr. Christian Klinke from the University of Hamburg, Dr. Parag Deotar from the University of Michigan, and Dr. García de Arquer from the University of Toronto. Each panelist will give a five minute talk highlighting the progress and challenges of their respective areas. Following their talks Dr. Garo Khanarian, who serves as chair of the Optical Material Studies Technical Group, will lead a discussion bringing together the different topics and opening the conversation to participation from attendees. An RSVP is required for this technical group event as lunch will be provided. Contact to register, pending availability.
