Low Frequency Photonics: Bridging the Gap

8 October 2012

The 4th IPOS Symposium: Low Frequency Photonics: Bridging the Gap, organised by the Institute of Photonics and Optical Science (IPOS), will bring together researchers from Australia and around the world in the fields of photonics and optics. It will focus on the optical physics and technology, application and future directions in the mid-infrared, terahertz waves and microwave regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.

A key goal of the symposium is to seek ways to 'bridge the gap' between near infrared photonics and the optics at these longer wavelength regions critical to many existing and future applications.
