PHYS-816 / 2 credits
Teacher: Tagliabue Giulia
Remark: July 10-14, 2023 Registration via http://nanophotonics4society23.epfl.ch/
The summerschool focuses on nanophotonics and its applications in energy, sensing and communications. World-leading expert in the field will address both fundamentals and state-of-the-art research topics, enabling participants to explore new opportunities for societal impact with nanophotonics.
Nanophotonics, i.e. the science of light control and manipulation at the nanoscale, is a cross-disciplinary field that enables new functionalities and applications in very diverse technologies, from energy and sensing devices to computing and quantum systems. The summer school will focus on different applications each day combining seminars and discussions with the professors (morning sessions) with interactive activities (afternoons). In particular, this summer school covers the following broad topics, including fundamental concepts and state-of-the-art research results:
Additionally, there will be a dedicated workshop on computational techniques for nanophotonics.
Students will be challenged to brainstorm a topic for a collaborative research effort that explores nanophotonics-based solutions for current and future challenges in the 3 major fields: energy, health, and sustainability.
Nanophotonics, energy, sensing, communication
Expected student activities
The students must attended all lectures and presentations.
Students have to bring a poster and pitch it on the first day. Additionally they must participate in a group project.
