Date:3/8/2013

TRIESTE, Italy, and BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA (PRWEB) March 08, 2013

Lasers and related research directions, applications in healthcare and manufacturing, and technology transfer claimed the attention of students and faculty from nearly 40 countries at the 2013 Winter College on Optics at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, 4-15 February. SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, is among eight organizations that co-sponsor the annual event and other ICTP programs to meet the needs of students and scientists in developing countries.

Directors were Roberta Ramponi (Politecnico di Milano), SPIE Fellow Fernando Mendoza Santoyo (Centro de Investigaciones en Optica, Mexico), and Fredrik Laurell (Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden). Local organizers were Joseph Niemela (ICTP) and Miltcho Bojanov Danailov (Sincrotrone Trieste).

The 21 faculty from 9 countries included SPIE Fellows Paolo de Natale (Istituto Nazionale di Ottica), Anna Consortini (University of Firenze), and Vasudevan (Vengu) Lakshminarayanan (University of Waterloo); and SPIE Past Presidents Malgorzata Kujawinska (Warsaw University of Technology) and Katarina Svanberg.

Highlights included a visit to Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste facility, presentation of the 2013 ICO/ICTP Gallieno Denardo Award to Mohammad Dhafer Al-Amri (National Centre for Mathematics and Physics, King Abdul Aziz City for Science and Technology) and a report on the Laboratory for Lasers and Optical Fibres (LFO), which is involved in the development of the ultrafast laser systems for the Elettra project.

In addition to $5,000 in support of the Optics Winter College, SPIE provides $30,000 annually to support an optics staff position at ICTP. In conjunction with ICTP, SPIE provides free SPIE Digital Library papers for participating countries through the eJDS program, and helps fund a laboratory pursuing novel
