Visiting Scientists

The IOS is dedicated to bringing together an international community of leading researchers and scholars from a wide variety of disciplines, including Chemistry, Physics, and Materials Science and Engineering. These pioneering investigators from both applied and discovery-oriented programs support our faculty and students in cutting-edge optical science and photonics technology by sharing their knowledge and experience through three lectures and personal interactions during their week long stay.

Prof. Gregory Scholes is the IOS coordinator for DVS Program for 2009-11. In 2007-09 the program was run by Prof. Amr Helmy and in 2005-2007 the by Prof. John Sipe.
