The Brazilian Photonics Society (SBFoton) and the IEEE Photonics Society (IPS) announce the joint organization and realization of the 2023 International Conference on Optical MEMS and Nanophotonics, OMN 2023, and the 2023 SBFoton International Optics and Photonics Conference, 2023 SBFoton IOPC. The 27th and 5th editions, respectively, of these successful conferences will be held at the Convention Center of University of Campinas (UNICAMP), in the city of Campinas, State of São Paulo, Brazil, from July 30th to August 3rd, 2023.

OMN and SBFoton IOPC are annual conferences that draw in leading researchers who are harnessing light, or photons, and control its propagation phenomena for multiple applications and scenarios, thus stimulating scientific exchange among scientists and engineers from industry, research centers and academia.

OMN focuses on micro- and nano-meter scale integrated structures that lead to diverse applications. It is primarily designed for reporting on the latest findings on Optical MEMS and Nanophotonics

SBFoton IOPC focuses on a broader approach of optics & photonics related technologies. It is primarily designed for reporting on the latest findings on: Biophotonics; Integrated Photonics & Optoelectronics; Lasers; Optical Communication; Optics & Instrumentation; and Sensors, Image & Illumination.

The strong thematic synergy between both conferences motivated their organizing and technical program committees to joint effort aiming at a co-located event with parallel (technical sessions) and shared (plenaries and social events) agendas. This joint Conference, called 2023 OMN/SBFoton IOPC will follow the typical format of IEEE conferences, therefore, they will include technical oral and poster sessions with the presentation of peer-reviewed papers (oral and poster), Plenary Talks, and Invited Talks.

Next generation silicon photonics

Michal Lipson

Higgins Professor of Electrical Engineering and Professor of Applied Physics, Columbia University

We are now experiencing a revolution in optical technologies: in the past the state of the art in the field of photonics transitioned from individual miniaturized optical devices to massive optical circuits on a microelectronic chip that can be modified on demand. This revolution is ongoing –new materials and technologies are emerging to control the flow of light in unprecedented ways and it is opening the door to applications that only a decade ago were unimaginable.

Synchronization in Nonlinear Nanophotonics

Alexander Gaeta

David M. Rickey Professor of Applied Physics and Materials Sciences and Professor of Electrical Engineering, Columbia Uniersity

The phenomenon of synchronization occurs universally across the natural sciences and provides critical insight into the behaviour of coupled nonlinear dynamical systems. It also offers a powerful approach to robust frequency or temporal locking in diverse applications including communications, superconductors, and photonics. Here I describe several examples of synchronization between various types of nonlinear photonic oscillators including Kerr-comb generators and optical parametric oscillators.

Flat optics: arbitrary wavefront control with passive and active metasurfaces and metalenses for high volume applications

Federico Capasso

Robert Wallace Professor of Applied Physics, Harvard University

I will discuss metasurfaces that enable light’s spin and orbital angular momentum to evolve along the propagation direction and nonlocal supercell designs that demonstrate multiple independent optical functions at arbitrary large deflection angles with high efficiency. 2D phase and polarization singularities (“structured dark”) have been realized, as well as 0D singularities. I will give the state-of-the-art of metalenses including their high-volume manufacturing for consumer electronics.

How does an idea of immersive display evolve into multiple innovations in personalized medicine?

Sunghoon Kwon

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Seoul National University

I was interested in future immersive display systems when I was a doctoral student, and that’s why I was into optical MEMS. Due to the massive amount of data that needs to be processed in the display system, I thought it should be a self-assembled form of identical active display components that should organize itself as a display panel later. I proposed ‘smart scalable systems' as a research theme that could enable such a massive system in display, energy, and biochips based on self-assembly of many heterogeneous 5.components. Though the immersive display by self-assembly is still just an idea, this concept of smart scalable systems evolved into multiple biotech innovations for the past 15 years in my research group. I will present the concept of smart scalable systems first. Then I will talk about our researches in structural colored microparticles, DNA laser printer, life-saving antibiotic test, laser-based single-cell genomics, a few of which already become commercial products. It is even more interesting Iam applying again the technique I learned from these researches back to displays that use self-assembly. Life is a journey full of expectations and surprises.

Gbps Laser-based Visible Light Communications

Boon Ooi

Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, KAUST

Visible light communication (VLC or LiFi) has attracted much attention in recent years. Data rate of multiple 100s Mbps has been accomplished using LEDs as transmitter. Recently, micro-LED and laser-based device and system technologies have been topics for intense research for Gbps VLC. in this talk, in addition to providing a general overview of recent advances in VLC, from the perspective of optics devices, I will discuss various challenges facing VLC and offers insights into the possible solutions.

Enhancement in LiDAR SNR using non-Classical Light

Amr Helmy

Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto.

Sensing modalities and instrumentation for target detection and raging applications have received tremendous attention over the past decade. This has been driven in no small part by the unsatiable demand for cheaper, more compact and significantly improved Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), which is essential for autonomous navigation. The detection of objects in the presence of significant background noise is a problem of fundamental interest in sensing. In this talk I aim to demonstrate theoretically and experimentally how one can exploit non-classical light generated in monolithic semiconductor light sources in conjunction with non-local effects to enhance the performance of optical target detection and model LiDAR system. Our protocols utilize quantum time-correlation which are obtained from a spontaneous parametric down-conversion sources. The protocols only require time-resolved photon-counting detection, which is phase-insensitive and therefore suitable for practical target detection. As a representative comparison to such a detection protocol, we also consider a classical phase-insensitive target detection protocol based on intensity detection. Unlike classical target detection and ranging protocols, the probe photons in our detection protocol are completely indistinguishable from the background noise and therefore useful for covert ranging applications. The experimental results agree very well with the theoretical prediction. In particular, we find that in a high-level environment noise and loss, our detection protocol can achieve performance comparable to that of the classical protocol that is practical in the optical regime.

Carmen S. Menoni also holds appointments in the department of Chemistry, and the School of Advanced Materials Discovery. Prof. Menoni’s group investigates the synthesis of amorphous thin film oxides by sputtering and uses spectroscopic and other material diagnostics to identify their structural organization at the nanoscale. ...continue reading

Amorphous oxides by design for photonics applications

Carmem Menoni

University Distinguished Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Colorado State University

Amorphous oxides are prevalent in photonic technologies. They are transparent from the near ultraviolet to the midinfrared and offer a large refractive index contrast with substrates like Si which is exploited to confine light. In this talk I will describe how the optical and structural properties of amorphous oxide thin films deposited by sputtering are tailored to engineer multilayer dielectric stacks with selected optical response for their applications to laser science and photonics

Spectral imaging: from push-broom scanning to integrated subwavelength filters

Sailing He

College of Optical Science and Engineering, Zhejiang University

I will present some of our recent results on scanning based hyperspectral imagers, as well as miniaturized spectrometers and spectral imaging system based on emerging subwavelength structures. Combining with some advanced reconstructive algorithms, miniaturized spectral imaging based on subwavelength filter arrays, tunable filters and co-modulated filter arrays is promising for e.g. portable consumer electronics and wearable devices.

Diffractive Optical Networks & Computational Imaging Without a Computer

Aydogan Ozcan

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UCLA

I will discuss diffractive optical networks designed by deep learning to all-optically implement various complex functions as the input light diffracts through spatially-engineered surfaces. These diffractive processors designed by deep learning have various applications, e.g., all-optical image analysis, feature detection, object classification, computational imaging and seeing through diffusers, also enabling task-specific camera designs and new optical components for spatial, spectral and temporal beam shaping and spatially-controlled wavelength division multiplexing.

New synchrotron light sources and Sirius, the Brazilian player in this game

Antonio José Roque da Silva

Professor at the University of São Paulo and General Director of CNPEM and Project Sirius

The use of synchrotron radiation by a great variety of fields has increased steadily worldwide for the past decades. This, to a large extent, is a result of the availability of the much brighter third-generation light sources, which allowed the development of new experimental techniques. Recently, new advances in accelerator technology are opening up the possibility of even brighter sources, which are being named fourth-generation light sources. Brazil gave an important contribution to science in Latin America through the development of the necessary technology and the construction of its first synchrotron between 1987 and 1997. Even though it was a second-generation machine, it was fundamental to develop the know how to build and operate a synchrotron facility as well as a significant user community. Moreover, its pioneering activities in synchrotron science gave rise, with time, to the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM). CNPEM is a research center that combines the development and operation of open, multi-user, globally competitive laboratory infrastructures with integrated research and development in strategic areas, with focus on nanotechnology, biosciences, biotechnology, and bio-renewables, cutting-edge engineering, and scientific instrumentation. Among these facilities, Sirius, the new Brazilian synchrotron, stands out. It is a state-of-the-art light source, one of the first fourth-generation machines in the world. It provides cutting edge research tools that will benefit a wide range of areas, significantly increasing the capabilities of the Brazilian science.

Quantum technologies for São Paulo, Brazil and Latin America

Paulo Alberto Nusseinveig

University of São Paulo Pro Dean for Research

The world is experiencing a second quantum revolution, with the introduction of emerging technologies based on generalizations of information science using principles of quantum physics. Concepts such as interference, indistinguishability, uncertainty, and quantum entanglement provide additional resources for processing, storing, and transmitting information, as well as allowing more sensitive measurements of physical quantities. In São Paulo, Brazil, and Latin America, we have important groups conducting academic research in this area but relatively few efforts to transform this knowledge into technologies. We will present proposals to change this situation, pointing out some sectors in which we can be especially competitive in the development of emerging quantum technologies.

Two-Dimensional Materials for Nanophotonics

Javier Garcia de Abajo

ICREA Research Professor at Institut de Ciències Fotòniques (ICFO). Engineering Sciences, Barcelona, Spain

We explore new approaches relying on two-dimensional materials for nanophotonics, including plasmonics in ultrathin crystalline metals, quantum-phase materials, and recent advances in coupling between free-space light and confined optical excitations. Atomically thin materials provide a platform for manipulating and exploiting light at the nanoscale, with a wide range of polaritonic modes. Recent developments in thin noble-metal films have created a new realm in plasmonics and nanophotonics. We examine progress in controlling ultrafast and nonlinear optical processes, and their potential applications in light modulation and quantum optics.

The International Optics and Photonics Conference, SBFoton IOPC 2023, will be the fifth conference organized by SBFoton – The Brazilian Optics and Photonics Society. This year, in particular, it will be organized together with the International Conference on Optical MEMS and Nanophotonics, OMN 2023. The event will be realized on-site from 30th July to 03 August 2023 in Campinas City, and the General Chair is Prof. Hugo Enrique Hernandez Figueroa of the State University of Campinas. The Conference moto is “Lighting Up a Smart Digital Future” and its main focus lies in the areas of optics and photonics and their application in optics communications, lasers, integrated photonics, optics and instrumentation, biophotonics, optical sensors, image, and illumination. The conference aims at the participation of industry professionals, governmental agencies, professors, students, and researchers from universities and research centers.

The event will feature nationally and internationally renowned speakers as well as presentations of invited and submitted papers. It will also have the sponsorship of industry and entrepreneurs that can exhibit their products on site. In the conference program, there will be slots for the sponsors to disseminate their messages. Additionally, the sponsor's logo will be placed in all media spaces of the conference, such as webpages, banners and promotional materials.

With an expected number of 120 participants, from Brazil and outside, the event will be an innovative forum for discussions with the participation of several leading figures from the Science, Technology, and Innovation area.

Besides plenary sessions and technical presentations, the sponsors will have the opportunity to exhibit their product, make business, contact their clients, advertise new products and technologies, enroll human resources, and promote their trademarks to a highly qualified public. A special session is also scheduled for the technical presentations of the sponsors.
