ISMB Will Participates in the Specialty Optical Fibers & Applications Conference

25 July 2014

ISMB will take an active part at the Specialty Optical Fibers & Applications (SOF) Conference organised by the Optical Society of America, taking place from the 27th to the 31st of July 2014 in Barcelona. The event examines multiple aspects of propagation (both linear and non-linear) in optical fibers, the construction of optical fibers and fiber structures specialized for various applications including sensing, non-linear propagation, new fiber materials and fiber/light coupling.

The Institute will be present through two papers. One invited paper will give the opportunity to ISMB researchers to present their work on the development of compact optical fiber amplifiers which was carried out within the framework of the SIMPLE and LIFE EU projects. A second paper will be presented by colleagues from the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light (Russell Division) with whom researchers from the Applied Photonics Research Area have been actively collaborating.
