The European workshop on Biophotonics and Optical Angular Momentum (BIOAM2016) will bring together scientists working in a wide range of scientific fields related to optical angular momentum (spin and orbital), including fundamental aspects, polarimetric instrumentation and applications in biomedical photonics and super-resolution microscopy. We aim to provide a forum for researchers from both academia and industry to exchange expertise, to identify new directions and perspectives in the field of OAM studies and to build an international research network for addressing the upcoming challenges, with special emphasis on biomedical applications of OAM. The workshop is organized within the framework of ANR TWIST4NET project.
Topics of scientific program
Higher order Poincare sphere, generalized Mueller matrix formalism
Interaction of spin and orbital angular momentum of light
Topological states and scattering
Chirality and Optical Angular Momentum
Propagation of vector light beams in complex media
