International Conference on Advances in Optics and Photonics

(XLI Conference of Optical Society of India)


Welcome Message

It is my privilege to cordially invite you all, on behalf of Optical Society of India, to the International Conference on Advances in Optics and Photonics (ICAOP-2017) to be held during November 23-26, 2017 at Department of Physics, Guru Jambheshwar University of Science and Technology in Hisar, India.

OSI-ICAOP-2017 is a XLI Conference in continuation in the series of the conferences among the OSI Members. The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for interaction for scientists, researchers, academicians and students worldwide. This will foster the establishment of long term relationship among various institutions from India and all around the world. The conference would include almost all the research areas of Optics and Photonics to address the challenges related to the light based technologies to further advancements in these niche areas.

The technical program of the conference would include keynote, plenary and invited lectures by renowned researchers from all over the globe. A number of oral and poster presentations would also be included in the technical program. Peer reviewed accepted papers will be published in indexed proceedings of a reputed journal.

The program of the ICAOP- 2017 will cover the areas namely; Adaptive Optics, ,Fiber Laser Technology, Green Photonics, Holography and Diffractive Optics, Integrated Optics and Optoelectronic Devices, Laser Spectroscopy and Instrumentation, Nanophotonics, Plasmonics and Biophotonics, Non-linear Optics, Quantum Optics, Optical Communications and Networking, Optical Fiber Devices and Sensors, Optics and Lasers in Biology and Medicine, Optics Design, Fabrication and Metrology, Photonic Materials, Super- Resolution Microscopy, Surface Enhanced Spectroscopy (SES), Tera- Hertz Science and Technology.

It is sincerely believed that the scientists actively engaged in Photonics and Materials Science research would be greatly benefitted by participating in the conference and gain deeper academic insights.

Hisar is one of the important places in the state of Haryana in northwestern India. It is located 164 Km (102 mi) to the west of New Delhi, India's capital, It is also known as Hisar-e-Firoza. Hisar has a Continental climate with very hot summers and relatively cool winters. Though the most commonly spoken languages are Hindi, Haryanvi and Bagri, yet English is very well understood and spoken. The temperature during November is Maximum (24.7oC or 76.5oF) and Minimum (8.3oC or 46.9oF)

Guru Jambheshwar University of Science and Technology (GJUS&T) is named after Guru Jambheshwar Ji Maharaj, who was a saint and great environmentalist of 15th century. The University has emerged as a premier institute to inspire, motivate and nurture professional excellence and has been accredited "A" Grade by National Assessment and Accreditation since 2002. The University is currently offering 45 regular graduate, post-graduate courses and Doctorate of Philosophy in different streams.

The Department of Physics established in 1996 with the aim to cater the needs of Laser and Optics industry, started a Master's and Research programme in Physics with the thrust areas of Lasers and Photonics, Optical Engineering and Materials Science.

The Organizers of the ICAOP-2017 truly believes that it will be a great opportunity for the participants to gain not only the academic insights but also the diverse Indian culture and life styles that will be eventually broadened to other cultures by the participants coming from all over the world.

The organizers are looking forward to welcome in Hisar- Haryana (INDIA), for a most enjoyable and gratifying period, the Optics and Photonics community and our friends from all over the world!

Yours truly
