The sixth installment of the Nature of Light conference series has concluded. You can find the proceedings here.
Once again we had the good fortune to have a well-known scientist present his thoughts and ideas on the nature of light. Marlan Scully presented the work of many historical
figures that shaped our current understanding of light, and added his own perspective and insightful thoughts. Watch a recording of the lecture here:
For many centuries, optical science and engineering (OSE) has been playing critical enabling roles in facilitating the advancement of all other science, engineering and related industries. So, it is of great significance that UNESCO has declared 2015 as the Year of Light. We are fortunate that our 6th biennial conference coincides with the year-long celebration of the Year of Light. So, let us pull our creative minds together to make this 6th biennial conference especially informative for both specialists and for general audience.
Our fifth Nature of Light conference has concluded, and once again many interesting and inspiring papers were presented. You can find the proceedings here. Talks given by Chandra were recorded, and we will make them available on this site shortly.
We were fortunate enough to have
Carver Mead give our Keynote Lecture this year. His talk includes a short, critical history of the Photon, and
provides much food for thought. Watch a recording of the lecture right here:
For our 5th biennial conference in 2013, we want our current and future participants to appreciate that our conference platform will remain as broad as the frequency range of EM waves, from Radio waves to gamma-rays! The key platform is to broaden our understanding of light and matter through all possible light-matter interaction processes. We strongly encourage authors to submit papers that attempt to imagine, visualize and explain the real physical processes behind the generation, propagation and detection of EM waves; thereby energize the debate on whether EM waves consist of indivisible quanta, divisible wave packets, or something new. All submitted theoretical and experimental papers should deal with actual or feasible experiments to prove their points in deference to pure mathematically formalistic papers primarily on quantum philosophy, pure quantum logics.
