Modeling in Optical Science (Part I of II)

The speakers will address significant recent developments in electromagnetic modeling. Particular emphasis will be put on industrial applications in optical science. The topics include diffractive optics, photonic band gap structures, waveguide, computational electromagnetics, and applications. The speakers will present model problems, discuss various computational approaches, and highlight diverse applications to industrial problems.

This minisymposium will bring together a group of leading researchers working in diverse subjects of modeling in optical science, to address recent developments, and to share up-to-date ideas with participants.

Organizers: Gang Bao, University of Florida and Lawrence C. Cowsar, Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies
