70th birthday of Federico Capasso  

Pisa Modena - 09.07.2019 - 70th birthday of Federico Capasso

To celebrate the 70th birthday of the eminent scientist Federico Capasso and his enthusiastic scientific vision into the future, the symposium “Harnessing Light with Structured Materials” aims to bring together outstanding, worldwide renowned speakers dealing with a broad range of subjects, including flat optics and metamaterials, photonics, high energy lasers, ultra-cold matter, nano-optics, opto-genetics and biological science.

The simposium, organized by CnrINO and CnrNANO instututes will take place on July 10 and 11 at the inspiring Arcetri hill in Florence. The venue is the ideal setting of the event: a long list of brilliant scientists, beginning with Galileo Galilei and including Enrico Fermi, have indeed extensively worked there, and several scientific institutions still project this tradition into the future.

Federico Capasso, professor at Harvard University and discoverer of quantum cascade laser, chose this event to bring together the most important international scientists who participated in the discovery alongside him and who are still involved in frontier research with repercussions in multiple sectors of common interests such as the environment, aerospace, biomedicine and new smart consumer technologies such as camera and video optics. These include Gerard Mourou Nobel Prize in Physics 2018. The conference will be an opportunity to compare the most advanced studies in the many disciplines and to announce important research that promises to bring new fundamental discoveries. Paolo De Natale (INO) and Miriam Serena Vitiello (NANO) will be the conference Chairs.
