Summer school "Spatio-Temporal Control of Waves : From Imaging to Sensing 2017"

Langevin Institute organizes a summer school "Spatio-Temporal Control of Waves : From Imaging to Sensing" in Cargèse (Corsica, France) from 24 to 28 April 2017. The School is directed by Mathias Fink and organized by Alexandre Aubry, Geoffroy Lerosey and Romain Pierrat. The program of the School is very diverse and includes speakers with different backgrounds.
The number of participants is limited to 100 - a number that can be quickly reached. Please do not wait and visit the web page of (...)

Complex Nanophotonics Science Camp

The Complex Nanophotonics Science Camp will take place near London (UK) from 25th to 28th of July 2017. It is an unconventional gathering (there’s a reason it is called a ’camp’ and not a conference) in an exceptional setting : the Cumberland Lodge (a royal mansion built in 1647, in the middle of Windsor Park).
The aim of the ’camp’ is to bring together 60 early-career scientists in the field of photonics, but also science writers and editors, in an unconventional format, mixing contributed (...)

Postdoctoral position at Langevin Institute (Paris)

The "Mesoscopic and Theoretical Optics" (METHEO) group at the Langevin Institute is interested in the theory and numerical modeling of wave scattering in disordered materials and nanophotonics.
We are now looking for a post-doctoral fellow with advanced skills in waves propagation in complex media to investigate the possibility to control the structural correlations of the system to optimize the optical properties. The work will be supervised by Romain Pierrat and Rémi Carminati (group (...)
