Indo-UK workshop on Fiber Optics, Photonics and Bioinstrumentation

Sept 2-5, 2008   

  Annual Photonics Workshop 2009 (APW 2009) National Workshop on Nanophotonics

Feb 27-28, 2009   

The aim of the Workshop is to introduce the exciting area of emerging technology namely Nanophotonics. Experts will discuss topics like interactions and materials related to nanophotonics, photonic crystals, biophotonics and photonic circuits. Nanophotonics deals with interactions between light and matter at a scale shorter than the wavelength of light itself. These nanoparticles are already being used for various applications of nanophotonics such as UV absorbers in sunscreen lotions. Metallic nanoparticles exhibit unique optical response and enhanced electromagnetic field and a new area called "plasmonics” has been introduced. There are nanoparticles which upconvert two absorbed IR photons into a photon in the visible UV range. Another important area is photonic crystal that represents a periodic dielectric structure with a repeat unit of the order of wavelength of light. Nanoscale photoprocesses can be used for nanolithography to fabricate nanostructures. These nanostructures can be used to form nanoscale sensors and actuators. A nanoscale optical memory is another area of exciting concept of nanofabrication.
