About conference

The conference is a continuation of a series of regular meetings of Slovak, Czech and Polish optical communities started in Rusava (the Czech Republic), in 1972. After a short interruption between 1980’s and 1990’s, the meetings have grown to conferences under the name "Wave and quantum aspects of contemporary optics". For 40 years, the conference organized biannually in turn in Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Poland has become a place to exchange knowledge on the latests optical research, to meet friends and co-workers including new young scientistis. The 20th conference is organized by the Institute of Aurel Stodola, Faculty of Electrical Engineerin, University of ŽiIlina, Department of Physics, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Žilina, International Laser Centre, Bratislava and Slovak Society of Electrical Engineering.

The conference offers invited and contributed presentations in oral and poster sessions. The contributions in generally all aspects of optics are welcome, e.g.:
  • quantum and nonlinear optics
  • wave and geometrical optics
  • optical communication and information processing
  • lasers and laser-assisted manufacturing
  • life sciences and health
  • lighting and displays
  • metrology and sensors
  • design and manufacture of optical components
  • education for research and training in optics.
