  • This 3-day Winter School will focus on wavelength-scale structures for tailoring photon propagation and emission as well as control, generation and detection of quantum light; novel materials for (quantum) nano-photonics; strong light-matter interaction; spins in semiconductor quantum dots.
  • The school will consist of lectures and invited talks, and will include poster sessions – see details in the Programme.
  • This school is organised by 4PHOTON - a European Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) in Horizon 2020.
  • The school is open for all early stage researchers at the PhD or postdoc levels.
