Under the patronage of the President of the University of Technology Prof. Dr. Amin Douai Thamer, the Department of Laser and Optoelectronics Engineering at the University of Technology held a scientific symposium on laser orientations in nanophotonics and biological photonics Thursday, 8/12/2016.
The Assistant of the President of the University of Technology for Scientific Affairs, Dr. Alaa Abdul Hassan on the need to establish such seminars by focusing on the delicate disciplines that have become a pressing need for the community and serve in his service, noting that the University of Technology is characterized by the opening of a number of specific disciplines and encourage students towards the study, Positive contribution to scientific development and the creation of competencies in these rare areas.
The head of the Department of Laser and Optical Electronics, Dr. Mohamed Abdel Wahab said in his speech at the scientific symposium that the recent developments and rapid in the science of photons, which include accelerating inventions in modern lasers and high-speed optics with very short light pulses led to more applications in the field of optical communications and biological and medical applications.
He added that the interest in this field came through the qualitative shift in the technology of the device industry, which deals with optical processes, especially in the generation of short wavelengths, so the term photonics began scientific circulation because it links the electronic and light science and employment in the manufacture of semiconductor devices.
The head of the department expressed his thanks and gratitude to the President of the University of Technology for his generous patronage of our symposium and all the attendees with wishes for success in scientific and practical careers.
The two sessions were chaired by Dr. Farid Faris Rasheed and Dr. Jassem Kazim, with lectures by Dr. Abdullah Khudair Abbas and Dr. Majid Sakhi Jaber. The second was chaired by Dr. Kazem Abdul Huter and the Rapporteur Mohammed Jalal Abdul Razzaq. Two lectures were also given by Dr. Makram Abdulmutallab Fakhri, Khaled Shabib.
The symposium concluded with the most important recommendations that the future scientific seminars to study the reality of cooperation research and problems that impede the work and provide realistic solutions in the field of specialization as well as interest in the projects of graduate studies and publication in magazines for publishing houses and make it the basic material for future seminars as well as the direction of scientific integration between engineering and scientific disciplines This is the beginning of the department and successfully for cooperation through joint supervision with the scientific and engineering departments inside and outside the university.
At the end of the seminar, certificates of appreciation were distributed to participants, researchers and lecturers.
