Conference communications



wlcp2016Ignacio Moreno attended the 6th International Workshop on Liquid Crystals for Photonics – WLCP2016, that was held in Ljubljana (Slovenia) from September 14th to 16th.

In this workshop he presented an invited talk entitled “Liquid-crystal spatial light modulator based optical architecture for the full polarization modulation – Application to encode optical polarization devices”.

We presented two communications. María presented the invited communication entitled “Outreach activities on light science and technology at TecnOpto-UMH during the International Year of Light” at the conference Optics Education and Outreach IV. This communication reviewed all the activities we developed to commemorate the IYL. The corresponding proceedings can be found at: link.

And Ignacio presented the communication entitled “Physical and encoded Q-plates for the generation of switchable vector beams” at the conference Laser Beam Shaping XVII. This presentation reviewed our recent studies with q-plate devices. The corresponding proceedings can be found at: link.


Light & Color

Ignacio Moreno presented a communication at the international meeting Light & Color in Nature held in Granada in May-June 2016.

The communication was entitled “Eclipsed sunrise and other optical effects captured by MUDIC group of astronomy”, and it presented some of the pictures of optica phenomena captured by our friend José Manuel Villa, from MUDIC museum.

The communication was entitled “Production of arbitrary polarized light beams with a liquid crystal spatial modulator”, and it was presented within the session Optical Micro- and Nanometrology. This communication reviews our recent advances in the design of polarization diffractive optical elements encoded onto a spatial light modulador system.
