International Workshop on the Optical Properties of Nanostructures - OPON 2013 | 13 - 15 February 2013

University of Bayreuth | Department of Physics | Building NW II | Lecture Hall H17


This international workshop is meant as a continuation of two highly successful Polish-German workshops, that were held on the same topic 2011 in Wrocław (Poland) and 2012 in Münster (Germany). Its purpose is the exchange of ideas targeted to new experimental and theoretical developments in the field of optical properties of nanostructures and other solid state systems.
