Finland-Japan Workshop on Nanophotonics and Related Technologies

01/01/2009 00:00 - 01/01/2009 00:00  

Nanophotonics is the combination of Photonics and Nanotechnologies, two highly multi-disciplinary fields and highly important enabling technologies for the 21st century. The use of nanostructures allows producing materials with completely new optical properties and gives new exciting possibilities in the design of photonic components. It is expected that nanophotonics will have a major impact on a wide variety of markets such as transport, communication, life sciences, manufacturing and information.

This workshop is jointly organized by VTT in Finland, the Secure-Life Electronics, Global Center-of-Excellence (GCOE) Program of the University of Tokyo and the Nanophotonics Research Center of the University of Tokyo to promote international collaborations between the participating organizations.

Prof. Ohtsu is a real reference in nanophotonic research. He is e.g. the author, coauthor, and editor of 22 books in English in the field! We welcome Prof. Ohtsu and colleagues to Finland.

The workshop is free of charge. Registration to Sari Mäläskä (
