National Symposium on Light - Matter Interactions
(NSLIMI 2019)

Dec. 26, 2019, ICSR Building, IIT Madras, Chennai-600036


About the Symposium:

Due to the rapid advances recently in nano-photonics and plasmonics, the applications of lasers and optics are now shifting towards cutting edge topics such as random lasing, whispering gallery modes, high harmonic generation and quantum information systems. A national-level symposium is planned to be organized at IIT Madras, which aims to capture theoretical and experimental research in the area of light-mater interaction currently being pursued in leading laboratories in India. The theme “Light-Matter Interactions” includes (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Atomic and molecular spectroscopy
  • Quantum optics and quantum information systems
  • Ultrafast micro-machining
  • Photonic crystal fibers and applications
  • Fiber lasers and amplifiers
  • Microwave and THz waves
  • Fluorescence and time-resolved spectroscopy
