Keynote Speaker III
Prof. Takashige Omatsu
Chiba University, Japan
Omatsu (B.S. (1983), Ph.D. (1992) from the University of Tokyo) is a
professor of nano-science division of a faculty of engineering in Chiba
University.His research intersts cover a variety of areas, such as nonlinear
optics, solid-state and fiber lasers, singular optics, and super-resolution
spectroscopy. Recent work has focused on chiral control of nano-structures
by angular momentum of light. Such chiral nano-structures will potentially
provide a new scientific aspect to metamaterials, plasmonics, and silicon
photonics, and they might also enable us to develop nanoscale imaging
systems with chiral selectivity.
He has already published >100 refereed journal articles, and he has performed >20 invited presentations of major international conferences, including CLEO, CLEO Pacific-Rim, CLEO Europe, LEOS, and ICALEO meetings. He has been appointed as an Associate Editor of Optics Express during 2006-2012.
He is also on the editorial board of Applied Physics Express.
He is currently working as a steering committee member of the conference on the laser and optoelectronics pacific-rim (CLEO Pacific-rim).
Professor Omatsu is a Fellow of the Japan Society of Applied Physics, and a Senior Member of the Optical Society of America. He is also Visiting Professor, Xinjiang Normal University, China.
Keynote Speech title "Chiral structures by optical vortices illumination"
Optical vortices with an annular spatial profile carry an orbital angular
momentum associated with a helical wavefront, and they have been widely
investigated in a variety of fields, such as optical tweezers and
manipulations, optical telecommunications, and fluorescence microscopes with
high spatial resolution beyond diffraction limit.
We and our co-workers proposed chiral structures fabrication based on optical vortices illumination, in which orbital angular momentum forces melted or softened materials to complete structured materials on a nano or a submicron scale. Such chiral nanostructures will potentially pave a new pathway towards new generation material sciences, for instance, highly sensitive detection of the chiral chemical composites and so on.
In this presentation, we detail the reason why such chiral nanostructures are established by optical vortex illumination. We also review the state of art of the advanced optical vortex laser sources including widely tunable optical parametric vortex lasers.
Keynote Speaker IV
Prof. Jae-Jin Shim
Yeungnam University, South Korea
received his BS degree from Seoul National University, Korea, in 1980, MS
degree from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in
1982, and PhD degree from the University of Texas at Austin, USA, in 1990.
He worked as a research scientist (1982-1986) and as a senior research
scientist (1991-1994) at Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST).
He has been a professor in Yeungnam University since 1994 and served as
Vice-Dean of Engineering. He also served as the President of the Korean
Society of Clean Technology and Vice President of the Korean Society of
Engineering Education. He is now the Directors of the Institute of Clean
Technology and the Clean Energy Priority Research Center supported by
Ministry of Education of Korea. He has published more than 160 papers in
reputed journals and served as the Chief Editor of “Clean Technology” and
Editor of “Korean Journal of Chemical Engineering.”
His current research interests are synthesis and applications of graphene (or carbon nanotube)-based nanomaterials for supercapacitors, catalysts, and sensors; syntheses of polymers and organic materials using supercritical fluids and ionic liquids; living polymerization in supercritical fluids and ionic liquids; and clean technology.
