Plenary Session I
09:00 Plenary talk : Quantum Cascade lasers and applications in mid-infrared photonics
Princeton University (USA)
09:40 Plenary talk : New material platform for plasmonics
Vladimir M. Shalaev
Purdue University (USA) We outline the recent progress in developing new plasmonic materials that will form the basis for future low-loss, CMOS-compatible devices that could enable full-scale development of the metamaterial and nanophotonic technologies.
