ANSO Symposium on Basic Science for Sustainable Development Sharing Light: Tradition and Innovation
Optics is all about light. As a representative of the basic science, optics plays an extremely crucial role in the activities of the entire human history, which helps us understand the world.
Optical applications can be found in every aspect of our lives, from contact lenses to fiber-optics communication; from diagnostic devices to solar panels. Optics and its related technologies have been widely used in exploring the origin of life, diagnosing medical diseases, creating clean energy, and transmitting image information. As the application of optical-based technology has pervaded all aspects of human activities, light has become one of the most important elements in scientific research, production and human lives. The use of optical technology to improve the quality of life in developing countries is the key to the achievement of sustainable development goals, and the importance of optical research and technology for global development has been fully recognized worldwide.
This meeting shall bring together all optical researchers and professionals, and provide a platform to share new ideas and advancing technologies in optics, especially those closely connected with sustainable and development of human beings.
The conference focuses on the three major topics of the basic science of optics:
– Basic research on optics;
– Optical science device and its application;
– Optics and the future.
In-depth study of optics in energy, life, health, agriculture, environment and other areas of the major problems and the need to solve the basic problems, to promote sustainable development of developing countries in the areas of disaster prediction and early warning, water resources/food security, clean energy, green technology, industrial innovation and infrastructure.
