13 July 2020 – 16 July 2020 OSA Virtual Event - Eastern Daylight Time (UTC - 04:00)
02 July 2020

This OSA Meeting will be held as scheduled in an all-virtual, web conference format. The OSA Bragg Gratings, Photosensitivity and Poling in Waveguides and Materials Topical Meeting (BGPP) will not convene this year.

Technical sessions will be presented live from the Eastern Daylight Time Zone (EDT) with a recorded archive available later for on-demand viewing. There will be no cost for attendees to participate. Speakers presenting a contributed oral talk or poster will pay a US$ 100 presentation fee. [Register for access.]

Integrated Photonics Research, Silicon and Nanophotonics (IPR)


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 2020 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 nonlinear and quantum photonics spanning from frequency combs to entangled photons generation and detection. Panel and open discussion sessions will also be included to facilitate a forum for free exchange of ideas and related discussion.
