26 July 2021 – 30 July 2021 OSA Virtual Event - Eastern Daylight/Summer Time (UTC - 04:00)

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 2021 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.

IPR will have a joint symposia with NOMA on Machine Learning for Photonics.
