Characterisation of Photonic Materials and Devices

Workshop on
Sapienza Università di Roma, 14-16 June 2017

The workshop is meant to provide early stage researchers with the most up-to-date and advanced progress in various fields of photonics materials and devices. To this end, prominent experts in the field will present the most recent advancements in plasmonics, photovoltaics, photonics, and nanostructured materials. Work package talks by early stage researchers will contribute to the scientific themes of the workshop in an informative and exchange-oriented atmosphere. Students at Sapienza are very welcome to attend the workshop.
