We cordially invite you to a series of lectures by prof. Maurizio Ferrari from the Institute for Photonics and Nanotechnologies - National Research Council (IFN-CNR Istituto di Fotonica e Nanotecnologie), Trento, Italy, which will be held under the project "Multidisciplinary PhD studies - nanotechnology in biomedicine" POWR.03.02.00-IP. 08-00-DOK / 17.

The topics of the lectures include the following topics:

  • Introduction to Glass Photonics

  • Energy transfer
  • Fluorescence enhancement
  • Absorption and emission cross sections; Quantum efficiency
  • Light scattering for characterization of material properties
  • Confined structures: Planar waveguides
  • Confined structures: Nanospheres
  • Confined structures: Direct and inverse opals
  • Confined structures: Spherical Microresonators
  • Confined structures: 1D - Microcavities
  • Nanocomposites systems and transparent glass ceramics
  • Energy conversion
