Keynote Speaker III

Prof. Takashige Omatsu

Chiba University, Japan


Takashige Omatsu (B.S. (1983), Ph.D. (1992) from the University of Tokyo) is a professor of nano-science division of a faculty of engineering in Chiba University.His research intersts cover a variety of areas, such as nonlinear optics, solid-state and fiber lasers, singular optics, and super-resolution spectroscopy. Recent work has focused on chiral control of nano-structures by angular momentum of light. Such chiral nano-structures will potentially provide a new scientific aspect to metamaterials, plasmonics, and silicon photonics, and they might also enable us to develop nanoscale imaging systems with chiral selectivity.
He has already published >100 refereed journal articles, and he has performed >20 invited presentations of major international conferences, including CLEO, CLEO Pacific-Rim, CLEO Europe, LEOS, and ICALEO meetings. He has been appointed as an Associate Editor of Optics Express during 2006-2012.
He is also on the editorial board of Applied Physics Express.
He is currently working as a steering committee member of the conference on the laser and optoelectronics pacific-rim (CLEO Pacific-rim).
Professor Omatsu is a Fellow of the Japan Society of Applied Physics, and a Senior Member of the Optical Society of America. He is also Visiting Professor, Xinjiang Normal University, China.


Keynote Speech title "Chiral structures by optical vortices illumination"


Abstract- Optical vortices with an annular spatial profile carry an orbital angular momentum associated with a helical wavefront, and they have been widely investigated in a variety of fields, such as optical tweezers and manipulations, optical telecommunications, and fluorescence microscopes with high spatial resolution beyond diffraction limit.
We and our co-workers proposed chiral structures fabrication based on optical vortices illumination, in which orbital angular momentum forces melted or softened materials to complete structured materials on a nano or a submicron scale. Such chiral nanostructures will potentially pave a new pathway towards new generation material sciences, for instance, highly sensitive detection of the chiral chemical composites and so on.
In this presentation, we detail the reason why such chiral nanostructures are established by optical vortex illumination. We also review the state of art of the advanced optical vortex laser sources including widely tunable optical parametric vortex lasers.
