2018 Symposium: Advances in Photonics and Quantum Optics
May 23, 2018
The 2018 CCMR Symposium will focus on experimental studies in nonlinear optics, quantum optics, quantum information science with applications in fields ranging from condensed matter physics and information science to sensing, metrology, imaging, and life science.
Speakers from industry and academia will join the Cornell organizers. They will include the 2018 CCMR Symposium Keynote Sproull Lecturer: Prof. Mikhail Lukin, Harvard University, a world-leading expert on the studies of quantum systems; Dr. Michael Liehr, Chief Executive Officer of the American Institute for Manufacturing (AIM) Photonics; Dr. Aleksandra Boskovic, Optics, Surfaces and Integration Technologies Director, Corning Incorporated; Prof. Roberto Morandotti, Energy Materials Telecommunications, Canada National Institute of Scientific Research; Dr. David Weiss, Advanced Research Director, Molecular Glasses, Inc.; Dr. Gary Greenburg, Program Officer, Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation; Prof. Nick Vamivakas, Optics, University of Rochester; and Prof. Nicole Benedek, Cornell Materials Science and Engineering.
The goal of this symposium is to i) introduce the community to the photonics techniques, and to the resources available in NY State for R&D and workforce training, ii) form connections with industrial collaborators, and iii) explore potential applications, including: consumer equipment such as barcode scanner, and remote control devices, telecommunications, medicine, industrial manufacturing, metrology, information processing and quantum computing.
The Symposium organizers, Professors Gennady Shvets and Gregory Fuchs, Cornell Applied and Engineering Physics, are leading a CCMR team. Their goal is to unite an expert materials and photonics team to develop “structured materials,” consisting of thin thin-film heterostructures designed to control light-matter interactions down to the nanoscale. This research is leading to the development of new, small-footprint optical information-processing platforms capable of operating at high speeds, with extremely high efficiency, at low power, and in some cases, in advanced quantum technologies.
A poster session will follow the lectures. Industry attendees are invited to present posters on related topics.
A few tables will be dedicated to industry attendees’s handouts and brochures. Contact us if you want to use this opportunity.
