About the Workshop

An intensive course on Fundamentals and Applications of Photonic crystals and Metamaterials will be conducted between 04 to 08 October 2021 at IIIT Allahabad. The program will be specifically useful for persons who are concerned with Photonics and Optical properties of structured composite materials also known Metamaterials, in Research and Industry as well as training/teaching of students/ personnel. Although IIIT Allahabad is working in this area, and recognized internationally. The course is designed to cater to the needs of teachers from Science & Engineering Institutions, scientists from R & D labs and practicing engineers from industry, and students. It aims to equip the participants with an essential knowledge of the area.
