Nano-Photonics Meeting 2011

Nano-Photonics is a new research field combining several scientific areas from materials to optics. It holds promise for future developments in information technology, sensing, bio-medical and energy applications. This workshop is bringing together experts from all of the different areas to discuss different approaches for tackling the exciting goals.
