IEEE Photonics Conference (IPC-2014, formerly LEOS Annual Meeting) is a gathering for scientists and engineers in photonics and light-related technologies involving quantum electronic devices, as well as other laser and lightwave applications.
It is expected to include more than 500 technical papers, invited plenary talks on industry issues, weekend events for young photonics professionals and students, as well as a manufacturers' exhibition.
A highlight this year is a special symposium on opto-mechanics - the combination of two previously distinct subjects (see below).
This year's short course: 'Introduction to silicon photonics device design & fabrication', is designed to teach students how to design passive silicon photonic devices using analytic and advanced numerical techniques.
Student designs will be fabricated by rapid-prototyping at a 100keV electron-beam lithography facility. All designs will be tested using an automated optical probe station and the data provided to the students. Students will then analyse their experimental data.
Paper submission deadline is 9 May, and authors find out if they have made it onto the conference in late June.
Registration and other information.
Papers are invited in the following areas:
