|Welcome to the website of the IEEE Photonics Sweden Chapter. Our mission is provide opportunities for information exchange, continuing education, and professional growth in optics and photonics. Our chapter is devoted to promote and advance basic research and technology in all subfields of optics and photonics, e.g., lasers, nanophotonics, optical communications, biophotonics, etc. To this end we bring together Swedish photonics researchers and professionals at our activities, such as workshops, conferences, and field visits.

Workshop on “Vertical Cavity Lasers” on 20 May 2016
The IEEE Photonics Sweden Chapter and the Fibre Optic Communications Research Centre
(FORCE) at Chalmers invite you to participate in a workshop on Vertical Cavity Lasers with IEEE Distinguished Lecturer
Professor Eli Kapon from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) is a light source produced in large volumes for data
communication, sensing, optical pumping, infrared illumination and industrial heating. Research on
VCSELs enable steadily improving performance, new innovative VCSEL designs, VCSELs in new material
systems to expand the range of wavelengths and applications, and light source integration for siliconbased
photonic integrated circuits. The workshop will shed light on some of these developments.
Introduce a girl to the exciting world of photonics
The goal of this outreach event to primary-, middle- and high-school girls was to show young women how photonics impacts the world. It was part of the global “Introduce a Girl to Photonics” event coordinated by the IEEE Photonics Society to support the Women in Photonics initiative and IEEE Day 2015 on October 6th. The local event in Stockholm is hosted by Acreo Swedish ICT.
