This one day national workshop addresses the last advances in optical coatings and other nanostructured supported systems of great importance for the development of integrated structures and other advanced photonic components. Three main areas of R&D in this topic will be particularly considered: photonics, solar energy recovery and classical optical applications of thin films. The scope of the meeting covers fundamental and applied aspects, encompassing the latest advances in fabrication technologies, the analysis and properties of the films and nanostructures, as well as the modeling of their photonic behavior. Coinciding its celebration with the National Conference of Materials, OPTO-COAT will provide a specific and unique forum where researchers and engineers from Spain and abroad will have the opportunity to exchange their latest experiments and more interesting scientific results with a focused perspective onto optical and photonic applications of deposited materials. The participation in the three thematic areas of well known speakers will provide a unique opportunity to firsthand learning the latest advances and main challenges in this emerging scientific discipline.
STRUCTURE AND ORGANIZATION
This meeting will organised as a Workshop, to be developed in a single day, with 3 invited lectures as well as presentation of oral communications and a poster session.
The Worhsop will consist on three scientific sessions:
Photonics, integration and nanoestructuration
Coatings for energy applications
Surface treatments and functional applications
