Grand Challenges of Photonics
27 October 2010
For the second time, EOS will dedicate a special session to the “Grand Challenges of Photonics" focusing on the fantastic capabilities of photonics and the science of light. Photonics is true enabling technology that each one of us uses on a daily basis. For example, it brings us information over the internet, it provides new ways for energy production and lighting, it is used for treatments of diseases and it can create the warmest and the coldest place in the universe.
Grand Challenges of Photonics will give you the opportunity to hear from world-class speakers about technologies which are revolutionary, uncommon and not realizable to date, but can pave the way for a bright future in optics and photonics.
Grand Challenges of Photonics is held in the spirit of Albert Einstein saying: “If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?”
