Abstract:

The 1999 Integrated Photonics Research Conference was one of the most important international conferences specializing in the science and technology of photonics. It provided an annual forum for the dissemination of new results involving all experimental and theoretical aspects of integrated photonic components. These included the design, simulation, fabrication, materials, characterization, packaging, and application of photonic devices as well as specific, timely and emerging topics which are represented by special symposia. IPR also provided a unique educational experience for students interested in photonic devices due to both its topical scope and its size. In scope, IPR was highly focused on issues relevant to photonic devices for use in communications, signal processing, and sensors, and thus provided an in-depth perspective on this field. The conference was large enough to provide comprehensive coverage of photonic device-related issues, ranging from materials to simulations to applications, while remaining sufficiently small to provide the informal atmosphere conductive technical interchanges.
