Lasers, Holography and Medicine: International School on Photonics and Optical Information Technologies Takes Place in St. Petersburg

ITMO University International School on Photonics and Optical Information Technologies is taking place in St. Petersburg on October 12-16. Students and professors from different countries make their reports on quantum informatics, optical metamaterials, computational photonics, medicine and biology.

The School is a part of IX International Young Scientists Conference "Optics – 2015," which started on October, 12. Its speakers also present their papers for school participants. For example, Taiichi Otsuji, Tohoku University professor, made a report on application of graphene-based materials in terahertz research. Chau-Jern Cheng, professor of National Taiwan University, shared ultrafine resolution technique for digital holographic microscopy and tomography on October, 14. School participants also visited a presentation made by Gregory Kvarles, president of “Optical Society of America,” who made a report on laser technologies development survey.

“I was very happy to be invited to take part in Russian conferences. I want to underline that participant of the School are excellent specialists. Being second and third-year students they accomplish impressive projects,” commented Mr. Kvarles. “I met with many students from different countries who started their lab activities only when Master's program students. ITMO University students start doing it much earlier. It gives them an opportunity to make progress.”

Previously OSC members received a SPIE grant to arrange this School. Learn more here.
