Events in 2012

IPOS Symposium 2012 – Low frequency photonics: Bridging the gap
5th & 6th of November 2012
Webster Theatre, Veterinary Science Conference Centre, The University of Sydney

Integrated Photonics Workshop - Turning your Ideas into Photonic Chips
7th of December 2012
University of Sydney
The aim of this professional training workshop was to enhance and broaden photonic chip design capabilities, establishing a framework and knowledge base to simulate and design mask layouts for fabrication of photonic integrated circuits.
The workshop was in two parts; with a morning session of talks on various aspects of photonic chip fabrication and materials. The afternoon session involved hands-on time in the computer lab where Prof Wim Bogaerts and Dr Pieter Dumon from IMEC/Ghent University introduced IPKISS, a computer simulation and design framework for creating photonic integrated circuits.

Events in 2011

IPOS Symposium 2011 - Energy and the Environment: Photonics solutions for the 21st centry
6th and 7th December 2011
New Law, Theatre 101, The University of Sydney

Events in 2010

IPOS Launch and Symposium 2009

IPOS Symposium: Biophotonics 1 – 2 July 2010
The IPOS Symposium: Biophotonics is a two-day meeting with academic speakers.

A vibrant, multi-disciplinary symposium, bringing together researchers working in fibre and planar biophotonics with researchers in the biological and health sciences. Invited speakers give two talks; the first talk a "big picture" overview of the field as you see it, to a broad audience, and the second a much more technical talk on a specific topic.

Time: 1 – 2 July 9.30am - 6.00pm
Location 1 July: MacLaurin Hall, The Main Quadrangle
Location 2 July: School of Physics, LT4
Cost: FREE
