Addresses new, cutting-edge research in optical materials and applications spanning the transmission spectrum from UV through terahertz.

NOMA is intended as a comprehensive conference that encompasses all types of materials with applications to optical technologies. Emphasis will be on advances in design and synthesis of optical materials for applications including imaging systems, lasers, nanoscale devices, optical waveguides and fibers, detectors, sensors, quantum photonics, and any other new and emerging applications.

New this year:

  1. A joint NOMA/PVLED symposium will focus on advances in perovskite materials for application in photovoltaics, light emission, and photodetectors
  2. We will host a workshop entitled “Machine learning for electromagnetics inverse design.”
