CMOS Photonics Winter School

The 5th Optoelectronic and Photonic Winter School will take place from 15-21 March in Trento, Italy. Deadline for registration: January 31st 2009

The 5th Optoelectronic and Photonic Winter School is dedicated to introduce, examine and review the recent achievements in the field covering fundamentals and devices, materials and technologies.

The school goals are:
– to put the emphasis on the main building blocks towards a silicon photonics: from the light generation to the cmos integration
– to introduce phD students and young researchers to this field and to determine the state of the art of silicon photonics, from the theory to the characterization with a point on the technology
– to be a forum to exchange experiences about new advances and developments in the field thus promoting the scientific exchange between participants and contributors.
