Topological effects in Photonics

April 18-20, 2016
Versione stampabile

This meeting will bring together researchers on topological effects in a wide-range of photonics-based systems, including integrated silicon photonics, propagating waveguides, photonic crystals, polariton-cavity arrays and much more.

The structure of this meeting is specially designed to promote informal discussions and brainstorming. Each speaker will have 20 minutes in which to present their work, followed by 20 minutes of open discussions. 

While there will be no open registration for this conference, if you are interested in attending please contact Tatsiana Yatskevich at tatsiana.yatskevich [at] unitn.it for more information.
