OBJETIVES:
The MICROSERES Program, founded by the Comunidad Autónoma de Madrid, organizes the International School on Advanced Processes in Optical Sensing and Photonic Applications.
The main goal of the School is to promote and boosts multidisciplinary discussions in physics, optics, biotechnology, chemistry, microelectronics and nanotechnology, in order to explore new concepts and sensing components based on photonic micro-nanosensors. To this aim, we will bring together scientific leaders of research groups from around the world and create an atmosphere of discussion in which both junior and senior researchers would participate in understanding the recent advances in all these fields.


Among other relevant topics, the Lectures will cover discussions on:

- Design of sensors based on micro and nanostructured materials based on the proper combination of resonant plasmonic elements with nanomaterials with electro- or magneto-optical (EO,OM) activity. Sensing with photonic crystals.

- Fabrication and optical properties of Nanoparticles with different electro-optical, magneto-optical, non-lineal optical responses and/or localized surface Plasmon resonances (LSPR), fluorescent molecules and quantum dots, as optical probes.

- Nanoparticle manipulation and controlled diffusion by light forces. Optical tweezers.

- Nano-Optics: Exploring new concepts and sensing components.

- Interactions between nanoparticles with biological tissues. Surface enhancement fluorescence (SEF), Raman scattering (SERS) associated to LSPRs as well as the possible active modulation of EO and OM nanoparticles.

- Bio-functionalization. Biomarkers, surface treatments and optical probe delivery inside the cells.

- Optimization of standard sensor devices and new strategies for sensing of important analytes related to environment and medicine, e.g., detection of biomarkers related to the Alzheimer disease, as well as for detecting traces of prohibited sport-doping substances.
