Roel Baets has since 1989 been a professor in the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture of UGent where he founded the Photonics Research Group. Roel Baets has mainly worked in the field of integrated photonics. He has made contributions to research on photonic integrated circuits, both in III-V semiconductors and in silicon, as well as their applications in telecom, datacom, sensing and medicine. Web of Science reports over 600 publications with an h-index over 60. As part of a team of 8 professors Roel Baets leads the Photonics Research Group. With about 90 researchers this group is involved in numerous (inter)national research programs and has created four spin-off companies.

Mathematical methods for illumination optics (TOM 2)
Jan Ten Thije Boonkkamp, Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands

Jan ten Thije Boonkkamp is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His research interests include: * Numerical analysis - numerical methods for partial differential equations, finite volume methods for conservation laws, complete flux schemes, hyperbolic systems, time integration methods, Monge-Ampère equation, ray tracing * Applied sciences: computational fluid dynamics, combustion theory, plasma physics, semiconductor simulation, computational illumination optics Jan operates two main research lines * Develop mathematical models for illumination optics, both analytical and numerical. An optical system is formulated as an optimal transport problem, subject to energy conservation. This approach allows us to derive a nonlinear PDE defining one of the optical surfaces. Efficient numerical solution methods for this equation are developed. * Develop novel flux approximation schemes for conservation laws. Basic idea is to compute the numerical flux from a local boundary value problem. The resulting numerical solution features properties of the exact solution

Leaky nanoresonator modes: their nature, computation & applications (TOM 5)
Philippe Lalanne, Institut d’optique, Bordeaux, France

Dr. Philippe Lalanne is a CNRS scientist, expert in subwavelength-scale electrodynamics, with a particular emphasize on computational electrodynamics and modal methods. His work has provided deep insight into the physical mechanisms involved in key nanoscale optical phenomena and devices, e.g., light confinement in photonic-crystal cavities and the extraordinary optical transmission. He has designed and demonstrated novel nanostructures with record or completely novel performance in their time, e.g., diffractive artificial dielectrics known as metasurfaces nowadays, slow light injectors, directional plasmon launchers, and non-classical light source devices. He is presently heading the group “light in complex nanostructures” at the Institut d’Optique in Bordeaux. He is also deputy-director of GDR ondes that gathers the French community on electromagnetic waves (~300 researchers and 20 industrial companies). He has co-authored about 180 publications in peer-reviewed journals. He is a recipient of the Bronze medal of CNRS, the prix Fabry de Gramont of the French Optical Society. He is a fellow of the IOP, OSA and SPIE.
