Optical Sensors (Sensors)

Optical sensors have numerous applications in research and development, national defense and commercial markets such as medical diagnostics and process control.

Because of the breadth of applications for optical sensors, the challenges to the design and functioning of an optical sensor for a particular purpose requires intimate knowledge of optical, material and environmental properties that affect sensor performance across physical scales. 

Sensors addresses all aspects of optical sensors from source and detection technologies, sensor configurations and processing approaches to applications. 

The meeting is arranged in broad topic categories and themes accessible to researchers at any career stage. Beyond the topics listed below, Sensors will be exploring focused topics that are considered timely due to a surge in literature or notoriety. This year’s focus is on quantum dot-based sensing/imaging, in honor of the recent Nobel prize in this area and Photonic Integrated Circuit (PICs) due to the surge in capability for these systems.
