School information

A course of the European School on Metamaterials will be held right after the Conference (2 - 3 October 2020). The lectures will be held at the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC), in Harlem, which is easily reachable from the conference venue by public transport. The school is chaired by Vinod Menon and Gabriele Grosso.

The school topic is:

Emerging directions for control of light-matter interaction in low-dimensional materials



Jacob Khurgin (Johns Hopkins University)
Nonlinear optics of low-dimensional materials

Andrea Blanco-Redondo (Nokia Labs)
Topological photonics

Alejandro Rodriguez (Princeton University)
Inverse design enabled nanophotonics​

Javier Aizpurua  (Center for Materials Physics, San Sebastian)
Light-matter interaction using plasmonic nanostructures​

Femius Koenderink (AMOLF)
Fourier spectroscopy for nanophotonics

Gabriele Grosso (CUNY ASRC)
Light-matter interaction in 2D materials.


More information about the school will be available soon.

Neaspec designs, manufactures and distributes advanced nanoscale optical imaging & spectroscopy microscopes, and was founded to revolutionize nanoscale analytics, with the ultimate goal to enable technological & scientific progress in every lab around the world. neaspec’s neaSNOM microscope combines the best of two worlds: the nanoscale resolution of atomic force microscopy with the analytical power of FTIR infrared imaging & spectroscopy. The neaSNOM allows studying chemical, structural, and electronic properties of a sample at a spatial resolution up to 1000-times higher compared to conventional technology like micro FT-IR. The non-destructive measurement method is equally suited for organic and inorganic samples and requires only standard AFM sample preparation.
