3D Nano Assembly for Photonics Workshop

Meeting ID: 819 3541 8823

The focus of this workshop is to identify unique properties and opportunities offered by three-dimensional (3D) hierarchical materials to explore their applications in photonics. The idea is to bring together and to "cross-pollinate" scientific and engineering communities that develop hierarchical materials using various 3D sculpting techniques; examples include additive manufacturing, chemical synthesis, self-assembly, and techniques that specialize in photonics.
