Photonic Networks and Devices

Photonic Networks and Devices

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

Photonic devices and networking concepts that drive future network scaling and performance for next-generation applications.
NETWORKS bring together researchers and engineers from various communities that intersect in today's applications that require photonic networks. The new applications and network architectures will both drive and utilize innovations in optical transmission and photonic devices. Growing demands for bandwidth, flexibility, programmability, resilience, low cost, high integration, high functionality, low power consumption, and small footprint require novel solutions in photonic networks and devices. New management paradigms in the framework of software-defined networking are needed for efficient and dynamic programmability of virtualized network resources. The meeting focuses at fostering research that supports the future scaling and performance requirements of emerging applications, including spectrally and spatially multiplexed systems, data center and data-center interconnection, cloud infrastructure, and content delivery.

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.
