WiP scope and topics
The school targets young scientists (McS, PhD, Post-Doc and
early stage researchers - BOTH MALE AND FEMALE), and
aims to familiarize them with the basic concepts
and the recent developments
in the area of electromagnetic wave propagation in novel composite metarials.
Main photonic materials categories that will be discussed are
Courses will range from presentations of the main principles governing
the wave propagation in the above types of media to more advanced topics
covering the latest developments and the perspectives of the
area of photonic metamaterials.
- photonic crystals
- metamaterials (from microwaves to optics)
nanostructured materials (with emphasis on plasmonics and semiconductor optics)
The school is organized in the framework of the gender activities
of the Networks of Excellence Metamorphose and Phoremost, and the
lectures will be given by mainly female scientists, both
established and young, working in the area of photonic metmatamaterials.
With this selection of instructors, the school aims:
(a) to make a real action towards promotion of women in photonics
and show the important role that women can play in this area, (b)
to create role models for the young female researchers and students and (c)
to familiarize with the picture of woman scientist.
