School of Photonics 2013

Cortona, ITALY
May 20–24, 2013

The objective of this year school is to offer a wide perspective on those rapidly expanding areas of photonic research which are developing concepts and ideas closely related to electronic technologies. The link could be at the fundamental physics level, or in the chosen materials, or in the device implementations.


  • Plasmonics
  • Terahertz technologies
  • Graphene photonics
  • Silicon photonics
  • Circuit electrodynamics
  • Metamaterials

The School will feature a number of lessons from leading international scientists of the respective fields and is open to Ph.D. and graduating students, as well as to junior Post-Docs. Participants are all encouraged to submit abstracts of their own research to be presented as posters and in a few selected orals.

Attendance is limited to 60 participants of which 30 places have been reserved for our ACTION students and Early Stage Researchers. Due to time constraints, the first 30 registered within the ACTION will be considered for financial support!
