Virtual Conference on Nanophotonics 2020

EurAsian Conference of Nanophotonics (EACON) is a biennial conference organized by Leibniz IPHT under the framework of the event series “Biophotonics4Future”. EACON aims at promoting the collaboration in nanophotonics among interdisciplinary leading scientists from European and Asian countries.

The partner countries of EACON 2020 are Germany and Taiwan. EACON 2020 promotes interdisciplinary collaboration between outstanding scientists in the fields of chemistry, nanomaterials, nanotechnologies, and photonics. Leading scientists will come together virtually and present the most recent advances in their research and establish collaborations with international partners. About 30 talks will be given by invited speakers and participants will have the chance to take part in our virtual poster session. Virtual meeting rooms will be offered to foster discussion and interaction between the attendees.

Key Facts

• Date: October 5-7, 2020
• Virtual Conference only
• Partner country: Taiwan
• 26 scientific talks
• Poster session
• Networking opportunities

The theme of EACON 2020: Chemistry, Materials, and Nanotechnologies for Nanophotonics
Light-matter interaction can be manipulated by controlling the condition of light and the properties of matter. Advances in modern chemistry, material sciences and nanotechnologies offer the opportunity to create artificial matters with atomic to nanometer-scale features, which enable optical responses beyond the capability of natural materials. To understand the fundamentals and explore new application opportunities of light-matter interaction, interdisciplinary scientists must exchange their knowledge and join their efforts to overcome current technical barriers. During EACON 2020, leading scientists in chemistry, advanced materials, and nanooptics will present their latest research advances and establish collaboration with interdisciplinary and international collaborators to address the challenges in Nanophotonics.

Conference Organizer

Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology

At the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena, scientists use light to find solutions to questions and urgent problems in the fields of health, environment, medicine and safety. Under the motto “Photonics for Life”, they research light-based technologies that make our lives safer, healthier and cleaner. Especially in the field of optical health technologies, Leibniz IPHT, in cooperation with partners from research and industry, is specifically promoting translation: the transfer of research results into applicable solutions – from Ideas to Instruments.
