7th International Summer School New Frontiers in Optical Technologies

Tampere, Finland
5 August 2013 - 9 August 2013

This year's event will build on the success of previous Schools, in particular that of 2011, which attracted a record 208 participants from 29 countries. In 2013, the School will once again offer students and researchers the opportunity to exchange scientific ideas, create contacts, and gain inspiration from leading professionals at the cutting edge of optical technology. However, in order to ensure a more relaxed, comfortable learning environment, the places are limited to about 150 participants.

General topics (preliminary)

  • Lasers and ultrafast phenomena
  • Nanophotonics and plasmonics
  • Novel materials
  • THz technology
