Abstract:
This symposium aims to capture the excitement of research on the rapidly growing number of optical and electronic phenomena in newly structured and disordered materials fashioned from sub-wavelength elements. The rapid advance of materials science makes it possible to design materials with tailored optical characteristics that will provide the basis for emerging photonic technologies in the area of optoelectronics and biotechnology.

Nanoscale Materials For Optoelectronics and Biotechnology

Posted on January 31, 2006

JSPS - UNT Joint Symposium on Nanoscale Materials for Optoelectronics and Biotechnology
University of North Texas, Denton, Texas.
February 2-3, 2006.


As scientists and engineers exploit the tools of nanotechnology to design closer to the molecular level, nanoscale materials engineering will have an increasingly important impact on a number of sectors, including biotechnology, electronics, energy, and industrial products. The Japan Society for Promotion of Sciences Symposium on Nanoscale Materials for optoelectronics and Nano-biotechnology will bring renowned international researchers and immerse junior academic faculty, postdocs, and graduate students in a rich learning environment. This symposium aims to capture the excitement of research on the rapidly growing number of optical and electronic phenomena in newly structured and disordered materials fashioned from sub-wavelength elements. The rapid advance of materials science makes it possible to design materials with tailored optical characteristics that will provide the basis for emerging photonic technologies. The format of the symposium will be a "school" that provides both fundamental learning and promotes scientific discussions leading to discoveries.

Topics to be considered include:
  • Micro & Nano Optics, Photonic Devices, Imaging & Sensing
  • Materials for Optoelectronics and Biotechnology
  • Optical Communications, Semiconductor Optoelectronic Devices
  • Organics for Photonics and Integrated Optics
  • Non-linear Optics and Ultrafast Phenomena
  • Bio-photonics and bio-electronics in Molecular imaging and drug discovery
  • Fluorescence Spectroscopy and Imaging for Biotechnology, Tissue Optics
  • Photonic meta materials, plasmonics, and nanoscale semiconductor and electronic materials

This symposium will have 7 sessions each day including 6 oral sessions and 1-poster session. The contributed papers will include the research activities of young as well as established researchers. There will be an official reception on February 2, 2006. We will also encourage the participation of JSPS alumni in scientific presentations. There is no registration fee for this symposium.

The symposium is sponsored by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) and will be organized by the University of North Texas (UNT), Denton. The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science is an independent administrative institution, for the purpose of contributing to the advancement of science in all fields of the natural and social sciences and the humanities. The local chapter of the IEEE-Lasers and Electro-Optic Society will support this symposium.

The University of North Texas is the largest University in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex with a student population exceeding 32,000 has recently initiated a College of Engineering to enhance technology-oriented education in Texas. The overriding theme of the conference will be on nano-optics, nanoelectronics and applications of nanotechnology in the optoelectronics, chemical and biological sciences. There are several major Universities in the Dallas Fort-worth Area with program in Nanoscience and Technology. These Universities are: University of North Texas, University of Texas at Dallas, University of Texas at Arlington, University of Texas- Southwestern Medical Center, Southern Methodist University and TCU. At the University of North Texas, our aim is to establish a strong research oriented education program in the interdisciplinary field of nano-science and technology involving the Departments of Physics, Chemistry, Material Engineering, and Electronic Technology by combining the independent nanoscience program.
