The Friedrich Schiller University Jena is organizing a two-day workshop on structured light and its applications. The workshop aims to foster exchange of ideas and disseminate the state of the art in the field of structured light. By including different aspects of the vast field of structured light, the goal is to provide a comprehensive view on this exciting field, to nurture new ideas by the meeting of specialists in different sub-fields, and eventually to pave the way to new collaborations between researchers with complementary expertise.

The workshop is intended both for established and young researchers -PhD students, early stage researchers and highly motivated Master students- who want either to learn how to exploit all the degrees of freedom of a light beam for their own research, or to find new ideas to pursue along their academic career.

We invite submissions in the general area of structured light with topics including but not limited to:

  • Sub-wavelength design of photonic devices
  • Optical angular momentum and its manipulation
  • Structured beams for optical tweezing
  • Complex polarization states for information processing in the classical and in the quantum regime
  • Geometric phase in optics
  • Spin-orbit interaction in photonics
  • Tunable beam shaping using liquid crystals
  • Optical metasurfaces for beam shaping
  • Nonlinear optics with structured beams
  • Light-matter interaction with structured beams


To register fill out the Google Forms using THIS LINK or through the QR code.
Participation in the following forms are possible: Oral presenter, Poster presenter or Attendee.
Oral and Poster presenters should submit a 300 words abstract after registering.
