January 22-24, 2017

Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai

The first International Workshop on Complex Photonics is aimed at bringing together international leading experts in studies of light transport in disordered media, covering subfields such as Anderson localization of light, random lasers, quantum and nonlinear optics of disordered systems and so on. We envisage active interactions of these experts with early career researchers in India, including senior graduate students, postdocs and young faculty. Accordingly, each talk is expected to maintain a common flow, a generous pedagogical introduction followed by technical narrative of latest research results.

The photonics community in India is growing rapidly. The meeting is expected to introduce the young participants to the exciting facets of complex photonics, and encourage them to identify potential common grounds in their own research. We hope that this meeting seeds the formation of a broader Mesoscopic Optics community in India.
