Optofluidics is an emergent research field that combines optics, fluidics and micro/nano technologies. Advances in these areas in the last ten years have led to very interesting application-driven research and technology development. This workshop will introduce the state-of-the-art of optofluidics to scientists and engineers interested in working in this area and who have background in relevant fields. This will also generate synergies between scientists of different countries to actively collaborate in research and development in this area.
Since this is a relatively new area of research, the topics covered will be based on the research activities of the lecturers in this field. General areas are:
- Fundamentals of optofluidics
- Fluidic waveguides
- Optofluidic micro-particle manipulation
- Optofluidic detectors
- Non-linear optics - microfluidic combinations
- Fabrication technologies for optofluidics
- Research topics in optofluidics
- Participant presentations

Scientists and students from all countries which are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA may attend the activity. As it will be conducted in English, participants should have an adequate working knowledge of this language. Although the main purpose of the Centre is to help researchers from developing countries, through a program of training activities within a framework of international cooperation, students and post-doctoral scientists from developed countries are also welcome to attend.
As a rule, travel and subsistence expenses of the participants are borne by their home institutions. Some ICTP funds are available for a limited number of applicants who are nationals of, and working in, developing countries. Such financial support is available only to those attending the entire School. As scarcity of funds allows travel to be granted only in a few exceptional cases, every effort should be made by candidates to secure support for their fare from their home country. There is no registration fee to attend this activity.
Deadline for application expired on 30 January 2009.
