  • "Singular Optics” (SO'2012)

    5th International Conference Singular Optics will be held in
    Sevastopol, Ukraine on September 16-21, 2012

    Organized by:
    Taurida National University, Crimea, Ukraine
    OSA – Optical Society of America
    EPS - European Physical Society
    OSA/SPIE Student Chapter of Taurida National University


    The purpose of the conference is to provide the discussions of novel
    approaches and advances in the field of singular optics, optical devices based on transformation of angular
    momentum of light, high-technology applications based on singular optics and vortices, optical fiber
    networks, etc. The techniques of singular optics (including fiber and nonlinear singular optics and their
    applications) contribute into promising and rapidly developing area of optical information technology. Such
    techniques serve for solving diverse applied problems ranging from industrial quality control to modern and
    advance telecommunications, and life sciences. There exists no other conference focused just on the
    singular optics approaches (theoretical, computing and experimental). That is why this conference is a
    unique possibility to highlight novel concepts and developments related to the physics of optical singularities,
    and to discuss the recent progress in their applications. Recent advances in trapping, transportation and
    rotation of microparticles, optical-vortex cryptography, in optical transmitting and processing information will
    be represented as well as conceptual problems connected with nontrivial structure of complex optical fields,
    their control and manipulation.
    This conference continues a chain of international conferences on singular optics: International Conference
    on Singular Optics in Partenit, Crimea, Ukraine (1997) [SPIE Proc. V.3487 (1998)]; Second International
    Conference on Singular Optics (Optical Vortices): Fundamentals and Applications in Alushta, Crimea,
    Ukraine (2000) [SPIE Proc. V.4403 (2001)]; NATO Advanced Research Workshop "Singular Optics 2003" in
    Kiev, Ukraine [JOPA: Pure & Apl. Opt., Spec. Iss., V.6, No.5 (2004)]; Fourth International Conference
    "Singular Optics (Optical Vortices): Fundamentals and Applications SO'2008" in Alushta, Crimea, Ukraine
    (2008) [J. Opt. A: Pure Appl. Opt. Vol. 11, No. 9 (2009)].
