After 20 years of active research and development of design and fabrication techniques, diffractive optics is approaching a status of mature technology – in addition to the ongoing fundamental basic and applied research, we can find diffractive optics in increasingly many applications which are either completely based on diffraction phenomenon or diffractive solution is remarkably more compact, light-weight, or cost-effective than its alternatives.

The EOS Topical Meeting on Diffractive Optics gathers the scientists and engineers working in the field of diffractive optics in industry or academic institutes. The scope of the meeting is to give the attendees a wide picture of the field, from fundamental modelling of light–matter interaction to design techniques and from fabrication techniques to novel applications.

The EOS meeting on Diffractive Optics will include a table top exhibition, focus sessions on Optics in Displays, Illumination, and Vision as well as a seminar Unified Optical Engineering with VirtualLab.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

• Micro-optics in displays
• Optics of modern projectors
• Adaptive optics in vision
• Modeling of diffractive optics
• Fabrication and characterization
• System integration
• Programmable DOEs
• Sub-wavelength optics
• Photonic crystals
• Novel optical materials including metamaterials
• Shaping and homogenization of optical beams
• Measurement techniques
• Diffractive optics for life sciences and security applications
