Optics + Photonics conference sees nano and solar future

Abstract:
Attendance was up and the San Diego weather was pleasant as usual for the Plenary-rich 2007 SPIE Optics + Photonics show held August 26-30. "Optics + Photonics is proceeding on the right track with its emphasis on nano and solar technologies, which are immensely important to our future," said Akhlesh Lakhtakia, Charles Godfrey Binder professor of engineering science and mechanics at Pennsylvania State University (State College, PA) and editor-in-chief of SPIE's Journal of Nanophotonics, an online-only journal that focuses on the fabrication and application of nanostructures that either generate or manipulate light from the infrared to the ultraviolet regimes. Lakhtakia continued, "But this emphasis on the nano and solar future has its feet firmly planted in the past glories and ongoing research in optics and photonics, a foundation from which all future technologies emerge." Lakhtakia was among the Plenary speakers at Optics + Photonics and also chaired two sessions in the Photonic Metamaterials conference within the NanoScience + Engineering symposium.
