Integrated Photonics Research (IPR) is the premier and longest-running meeting dedicated to groundbreaking advances in research and development of integrated photonic and nano-photonic technologies on all relevant material platforms.
IPR brings together experts from both academia and industry for an open discussion of cutting-edge research, trends and problems. IPR 2018 will continue with the broadened scope started in 2015, which incorporated new sub committees dedicated to emerging areas. They will cover the emerging topics in nano-photonics, new materials for photonics, such as two dimensional materials, epsilon-near-zero materials, integrated photonics for high precision applications such as frequency combs, electro-optic oscillators. Panel and open discussion sessions will also be included to facilitate a forum for free exchange of ideas and related discussion.
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; data and information processing, including integrated quantum circuits; and optical monitoring and sensing, including mid-IR photonics. On the material side, traditional III-V semiconductor photonic devices and integrated circuits; silicon based devices and waveguide circuitry; silica on silicon and polymer photonic lightwave circuits as well as new and emerging material platforms such as graphene, 2D materials, and transparent conducting oxides are all within the scope of IPR.
