Symposium: Advanced Functional Fibers and Smart Fabrics (F3)

November 11, 2019    Wuhan, China

Chair:

Guangming Tao, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (China)

Co-chairs:

Lei Wei, Nanyang Technological University (Singapore)

Chong Hou, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (China)

Fibers are one of the most fundamental material forms, made by nature or by humans. In particular, optical fibers are used in multitude of applications, ranging from telecommunications to monitoring structural integrity of bridges. Interestingly, despite the many complex technological applications of optical fibers, the fibers themselves are remarkably simple from the perspective of materials composition. In recent years, major breakthroughs were made which demonstrated fibers with novel optical, electronic, acoustic and cell interfacing properties, that enable new functionalities which are not usually associated with fibers and fabrics. Along with the evolution of functional fibers and smart fabrics, come new ways of thinking about the manufacturing process itself. Functional fiber and smart fabrics research is at the crossroads of many disciples, including optics, materials science, device physics, nanotechnology, and fluid dynamics. While this field is still in its initial stages of development, there has been tremendous recent progress. This symposium will provide a home for scientists, engineers, students, publishers, entrepreneurs and investors in the field of Advanced Functional Fibers and Fabrics.

These interdisciplinary topics will be connected by invited talks during the AF3 symposium:

● Theory and modelling of fibers

● Study and utilization of nanotechnology in fibers

● Fibers with optical, electric, opto-electronic, acoustic or neural activities

● Novel fiber manufacturing

● Fibers in laser, healthcare, biomedical, clinic, energy and more

● Smart fabrics and wearable electronics


Workshop 01: Optical Forces, Trapping, Manipulation and Related Applications

November 11, 2019    Wuhan, China

Organizer:

Aiqun Liu, Nanyang Technological University (Singapore)

Co-organizers:

Jie Ma, Sun Yat-sen University (China)

Yuanjie Pang, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (China)

The optical forces originated from the exchange of photon momentum, as well as optical traps formed by a restoring optical force field, have allowed for gentle and precise manipulation of micro- and nanoparticles. The optical trapping technique shared the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2018 particularly for its innumerous applications in the broad field of biophotonics. The Optical Forces, Trapping, Manipulation and Related Applications Workshop is open to all topics related to novel methods of the formation of optical forces and traps, the realization of new functionalities such as particle sorting and optofluidics, single particle and single molecule characterizations, as well as applications in biology and other fields.


Workshop 02:Light-matter interaction in semiconducting nanostructures

November 11, 2019    Wuhan, China

Organizer:

Qihua Xiong, Nanyang Technological University (Singapore)

Co-organizer:

Dehui Li, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (China)

Light-matter interaction is not important for fundamental understanding the basic optical processing in materials, but also plays an indispensable role in a variety of optoelectronic applications and devices including solar cells, light emitting devices, lasers, photodetectors and a few to name. This workshop will focus on the light-matter interaction in semiconducting nanostructures and the topics will cover luminescence spectroscopy, ultrafast spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy and electron-phonon coupling.


Workshop 03: More-than-Moore with Electronic-Photonic Co-Design

November 11, 2019    Wuhan, China

Co-organizers:

Min Tan, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (China)

Jiang Xu, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (China)

With Moore's Law approaching to its end, the semiconductor industry starts to embrace the "More-than-Moore" concept that includes a diversity of new functionalities. Silicon photonics emerges as a promising option for this"More-than-Moore" concept. Just as integrating the inductor into CMOS platform in the late 1990s that enabled CMOS RF IC and created the mobile age, silicon photonics has the potential to revolutionize many new applications in the IoT and AI age. Nevertheless, silicon photonics faces challenges, such thermal sensitivity, on-chip laser, high efficiency coupling and so on. To solve these challenges, the co-design of photonics and microelectronics become essential.

 

 


Workshop 04: Ultrafast spectroscopy and applications

November 11, 2019    Wuhan, China

Organizer:

Kenneth Kin-Yip Wong, The University of Hong Kong (China)

Co-organizer:

Chi Zhang, Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (China)

Ultrafast spectroscopy is a method based on the exploitation of temporal dispersion for temporally stretching information encoded ultrashort optical pulses such that the information is detected and digitized by a slow photodetector and digitizer. Since it was conceived, it has enabled the observation of nonrepetitive and statistically rare events on ultrashort time scales. This workshop provides a forum for introducing the fundamental principles, emerging applications, and recent advances of ultrafast spectroscopy as well as for discussing its technical challenges and future perspectives.


The 7th Sino-French Optoelectronics Forum

November 11, 2019    Wuhan, China

Chairs:

Boris Gralak, Institut Fresnel (France)

Xinliang Zhang, Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (China)

Co-chair:

Sailing He, Zhejiang University (China)

Co-organizers:

Dingsan Gao, Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (China)

Benfeng Bai, Tsinghua University (China)

The 7th Sino-French Optoelectronics Forum is an important part of POEM 2019 conference to enhance the Sino-French cooperation on photonics and optoelectronics. This forum is organized under the Sino-French 'Photonet' research network, which currently includes 8 Chinese teams and 7 French teams. This year the academic topics of the forum will cover biophotonics, optical imaging, metamaterials, photonic nanomaterial and nanofabrication, integrated optics, etc.

 

 


FOE Editorial Board Meeting

November 12, 2019    Wuhan, China

Frontiers of Optoelectronics (FOE) is one of the international academic journals in the “Frontiers” serials supervised by the Chinese Ministry of Education. It is jointly published by Higher Education Press of China and Springer-Verlag GmbH of Germany with both online and printed versions. It is sponsored by Higher Education Press (HEP) of China, Huazhong University of Science & Technology (HUST) and the Chinese Optical Society (COS), and organized by Wuhan National Lab for Optoelectronics (WNLO). The editors-in-chief are Academician Qihuang Gong from Peking University and Prof. Xinliang Zhang from Huazhong University of Science and Technology.

FOE journal aims at introducing the most recent research results and the cutting edge improvements in the area of photonics and optoelectronics. It is dedicated to be an important platform for rapid communication and exchange between researchers in the related areas. It has been indexed by Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), Ei Compendex, SCOPUS, INSPEC, Google Scholar, CSA, Chinese Science Citation Database (CSCD), OCLC, SCImago and Summon by ProQuest.

In the recent years, the Chinese government vigorously advocates the development of world-class academic journals and advanced knowledge services system to better serve the comprehensive development of various disciplines. The rapid development of domestic optical journals has brought severe challenges to the development of FOE. To take the advantage of the opportunity of the 12th International Photonics and OptoElectronics Meetings (POEM 2019) that brings together a wide range of research, technologies and perspectives in the fields of photonics and optoelectronics, FOE plans to hold Editorial Board Meeting at Nov. 12, 2019 during POEM 2019 (Wuhan, Nov. 11-14). Future development directions, market strategies and main tasks of FOE will be discussed from the perspective of internationalization. This meeting will be of the most importance for FOE journal to better serve the development of photonics and optoelectronics, better respond to the development strategies of academic journals in China, and meet the challenges in the new development tide of optical journals.
