3rd 4-Photon School


  • Day 1 – Monday, 20 Jan 2020
  • Day 2 – Tuesday, 21 Jan 2020
  • Day 3 – Wednesday, 22 Jan 2020

Venue - The Diamond, The University of Sheffield, 32 Leavygreave Rd, Sheffield S3 7RD, UK

Winter School Website - https://sites.google.com/sheffield.ac.uk/nano-photonics-winter-school/home

Programme - https://sites.google.com/sheffield.ac.uk/nano-photonics-winter-school/programme

  • This 3-day Winter School will focus on the use of wavelength-scale structures to control photon propagation and emission, as well as the interaction of photons with electronic excitations and spins in semiconductor quantum dots, colour centres in diamond etc.  Single-photon detection methods will also be reviewed.
  • The school is open for all early stage researchers at the PhD or postdoc levels.
  • There will also be a 4PHOTON Supervisory Board Meeting and Dinner on Day 2 – see Programme.
  • 4PHOTON ESRs will present posters of their work - https://sites.google.com/sheffield.ac.uk/nano-photonics-winter-school/abstract
