Photonics in Switching

Photonics in Switching

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

Photonics in Switching addresses all aspects of optical switching components & devices, optical switching functions & building blocks, optical systems and optical networking.

Photonics in Switching highlights the latest research activities in areas related to "Photonics in Switching" and will be presented in an environment that is conducive to in-depth and open discussions of the trends in this area. Research topics include optical switching technologies that allow dense integration of photonic and electronic functionalities operating side-by-side; various aspects of photonics in computing systems; optical subsystem technologies and architectures including optical signal processing, integrated advanced modulation schemes; optical-code translation,  label switching and processing; and optical networking and computing architectures and systems including optical cross-connects and interconnects, reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexers, optical packet and burst switching routers, rapidly reconfigurable networks and next-generation protocols and architectures.

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.
