r spacing of the slits). This tunability in turn has the potential to be exploited in new, potentially high-resolution, high-quality forms of coherence-related imaging. (Paper FTuS3, "Surface Plasmons in Young's Experiment Modulate the Spatial Coherence of Light")

PLENARY SESSION: NANOPHOTONICS AND OPTICAL FREQUENCY COMBS

At the plenary and awards session, two speakers will present topics that span numerous realms in cutting-edge optics. Nobel Laureate John L. Hall contributed significantly to the development of the laser, helping to take it from a laboratory curiosity to one of the fundamental tools of modern science. In his talk, "The Optical Frequency Comb: A Remarkable Tool with Many Uses," he will describe a recent measurement tool that can verify assumptions involving miniscule distances within atoms yet also potentially help detect Earth-like planets outside our solar system. Dr. Hall is a senior fellow emeritus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and an adjoint fellow of JILA (formerly the Joint Institute for Laboratory Astrophysics).

The second talk, "Nanophotonics: From Photonic Crystals to Plasmonics," will be presented by Eli Yablonovitch of University of California, Berkeley. The natural world is filled with crystals, structures made of building blocks arranged in a repeating pattern that interact with electron waves. In his talk, Yablonovitch will start by discussing photonic crystals, artificial, multidimensional, periodic structures that are intended for electromagnetic waves. Such nanophotonic structures are now being designed and used in electronic chips, silicon-on-insulator structures that can reduce current leakage and power consumption in state-of-the-art computer chips. Miniaturizing the structures further will take us toward nanoplasmonics, metallic-wired electrical circuits running at optical frequencies.
