"Tailored Disorder" SPP 1839 Spring School

Spring School

From May 15-17, 2017 the Spring School, stemming from the DFG priority program 1839, was held in Karlsruhe. On this occasion, 18 researchers from Germany and abroad held lectures on the optical influence of structural and chemical irregularities, and on the possibility to tailor this disorder with a view of designing novel advanced photonic materials. Topics covered included e.g. the analysis of light propagation and scattering in disordered media, disordered photonic crystals and metamaterials, biological photonic structures and the relevance of these materials for applications such as photovoltaics, random lasers etc.


KSOP is pleased to have been a sponsor of this Spring School and to have enabled the participation of KSOP PhD students to this international event.
