11th International Symposium on Optics and its Applications
11-15 July 2023
OPTICA and SPIE joint student chapter of Yerevan State University (YSO), in collaboration with the OPTICA student chapter of The Institute for Physical Research of NAS RA, will host the 11th International Symposium on Optics and its Applications (OPTICS11) from July 11th to 15th 2023 in Yerevan-Ashtarak Armenia.
OPTICS11 is sponsored by the YSO Student Chapter‘s Optica Special Program grant. This edition is devoted to the 100th anniversary of Mikael Ter-Mikaelian, an important contributor to high-energy physics, laser physics, and nonlinear optics. In 1963, as the dean of the Physics department at Yerevan State University, he founded four new chairs and organized the Joint Radiation Laboratory of the university and the Academy of Sciences of Armenia (NAS RA). Under his supervision, that laboratory produced the first solid-state lasers in the Soviet Union and, in 1968, became the Institute for Physical Research (IPR) of the ASA. To celebrate his legacy the symposium will bring together experienced scientists from various countries in the field of optics and photonics to provide a perfect setting for the participants to acquire the most recent developments in that area.
Invited speakers from more than 20 research institutions worldwide will present their talks on different research topics. During the Symposium, a special section will be dedicated to the professional development lectures from the academy and industry points of view. Students will have a chance to present their research with oral presentations as well as posters.
