The main goals of the Conference are: 

  • To present the recent results and achievements in the area of light polarization probes of random media;
  • To discuss the fundamental aspects of polarized coherent and non-coherent light propagation in scattering and absorbing media with complex structure;
  • To discuss the possible applications of spectral-polarization and coherence-domain techniques for morphological and functional diagnostics in biomedicine and for characterization of micro- and nanostructured dispersive media and composite materials in material science;
  • To involve young scientists and student to the active and creative work in the fields of fundamental and applied optics, laser physics,  and photonics.
 
Topics:

The scientific program will include but is not restricted to the following topic areas:

  • Fundamentals of polarized light propagation in random media and interrelations between the coherence and polarization properties of light waves – traditional approaches and new sights
  • Basic principles and applications of singular optics and theory of optical vortices
  • Polarized light in biomedicine – from simple devices to sophisticated applications
  • Design and practical use of polarization-based probes and sensors in various areas of modern science and technology
  • Double refraction, optically active, and chiral homogeneous and heterogeneous natural and artificial media;
  • Resonant light-matter interactions at nanometer scale and their manifestations in polarization properties of scattered light
  • Analytical and numerical approaches to simulation of polarized light propagation in multiple scattering random media
