LASER 2017: Capasso gives illuminating metasurface plenary

As SPIE launches new Digital Optical Technologies conference series and hosts AR/VR demonstrations at LASER

The new SPIE Digital Optical Technologies conference — highlighted by the opportunity for a hands-on demonstration of advanced augmented, virtual, and mixed reality headsets — joins the established SPIE Optical Metrology symposium coincident with Laser World of Photonics in Munich.

The conferences run through until 29 June at the ICC, adjacent to the Messe. The AR/VR demonstrations are taking place at the H4 Hotel, just across the lake outside of the Munich Messe.

Federico Capasso, the Robert Wallace Professor of Applied Physics at Harvard University and the inventor in 1994 of the quantum cascade laser, today presented the SPIE plenary talk on metasurface diffractive optics.
