“10th Optoelectronics and Photonics Winter School: NLP2019 – Nonlinear Photonics”
IEEE Photonics Italy is Technical Sponsor of the NLP2019 – Nonlinear Photonics Winter School, that will take place in Andalo (Italy) from 20th till 26th of January,2019.
The School aims in bringing together a large number of PhD students and young researchers from all parts of the world which, during a one-week intense schedule, will follow a series of lectures on nonlinear photonics. The lectures are held by internationally recognized experts in the field. At the same, the students are encouraged to enjoy the beautiful location where the school is organized. These Optoelectronics and Photonics Winter School series are traditionally held in Trentino region every second year and have a very good reputation for the in-depth coverage of a topic and the lively atmosphere where ideas exchanges, discussions and amusements are all blended to give a strong physical flavour and unforgettable souvenirs.

IEEE Photonics Italy Chapter has been awarded the
“IEEE 2018 Chapter of the Year Award” and the
“IEEE 2018 Senior Member Initiative Award”
We proudly announce that in this year our IEEE Photonics Italy Chapter has won a double Award:
The IEEE 2018 Chapter of the Year Award, for “…their innovative technical programming as well as for building an environment that reflects the rich diversity of the photonics community. From organizing the "1st International School on Nano-Tooling" and supporting governmental initiatives related to quantum technologies to continually holding Women in Photonics, Young Professionals and STEM Outreach programming, the Italy chapter consistently provides concrete educational opportunities for its members. This past year the chapter reached and positively impacted over 1,500 people with photonics in their region”
The IEEE 2018 Senior Member Initiative Award, for “elevating 26 members to IEEE Senior Member and 6 members to IEEE Fellow. This was accomplished through regular elevation recruitment communications and meetings with the Chapter’s leadership committee and the IEEE Italy Section. The Italy chapter makes every effort to ensure different sectors are reached and are attentive to the varying needs of the photonics community. The chapter also takes pride that women make up 35% of their leadership committee, better than the Society average, which the Chapter believes contributes to the diverse make-up of their elevated members.”
Prof. Gabriella Cincotti, Member of IEEE Photonics Italy Executive Committee and of IPS Board of Governors, with IPS President Chennupati at the Award Ceremony, on Oct 1st 2018
We gratefully thank all members of the IPS Italy Executive Committee, for the great and passionate job done, and all of our Members for sustaining us!
Silvia M. Pietralunga – President
Antonio d’Alessandro – Vice President

Advances in Integrated Photonic Signal Processing
17/07/2018, h 12:00
Speaker: Prof. Robert A. Minasian of School of Electrical and Information Engineering, University of Sydney, Australia
Location: Università degli Studi Roma Tre
Via Ostiense, 159 ROMA, 00154 Italy
Abstract: Photonic signal processing is attractive because it leverages the advantages of the optical domain to benefit from the wide bandwidth, low loss, and natural immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI) that photonics offers. Recently there has been a strong drive to realise photonic integrated circuits using silicon photonics. Advances in integrated microwave photonic signal processing and sensing are presented. These include optical single sideband modulators, optical vector network analysers with high resolution, multi-function processors, and integrated photonic sensors using optical micro-ring resonators that demonstrate extremely high sensitivity. These microwave photonic processors provide new capabilities for the realisation of high-performance signal processing and sensing.
