The topics of the meetings are the simulation, physical properties and deeper understanding of novel photonic devices. The audience consists of physicists, mathematicians and electrical engineers. Our intent is to have an active exchange of results, ideas and methods between these different scientific fields from fundamental to applied research.
Up-to-date information are also distributed via our mailing list.
