“pLED International symposium 2023: Exploring Invisible Light Technology”was held on March 4-5, and has ended.
On March 4th and 5th, 2023, Institute of Post-LED Photonics, Tokushima University held an international symposium, “pLED International Symposium 2023: Exploring Invisible Light Technology,” at the Koyamashima Campus Keyaki Hall, with the aim of further advancing research in optical science.
This symposium invited prominent researchers from Bordeaux University, Melbourne University, Academia Sinica, University of California, San Diego, RIKEN, The University of Tokyo,The University of ElectroCommunications, Japan, Keio University, and Osaka University, who are active at the forefront of their fields, to present on the latest trends in optical science research, including communications, optical combs, biophotonics, laser spectroscopy, and metamaterials. Active discussions were held with the participants during the Q&A session, and high interest was observed in each presentation.
On the 4th, poster presentations were also given, and out of the university and graduate students who presented, the top six voted by the participants were awarded the “Best Student Poster Award”.
Over the two days, a total of 174 participants, both in-person and online, took part in the symposium, which ended on a high note.
pLED is working on practical research on next-generation light sources and medical-light fusion as part of the “Next-Generation ‘Light’ Creation and Application for Industrial Promotion and Youth Employment Creation Plan” in Tokushima Prefecture, a project adopted under the Cabinet Office’s “Grant Program for Regional Revitalization by Local Universities and Regional Industries,” to promote research in optical science for the creation of new optical industries in collaboration with local industries.
