General Scope :
Green Photonics is a pertinent research topic in the field of materials science, which draws on science and technology for efficient use and generation of photons with various kinds of nanometer-scaled materials. The Graduate School of Materials Science, in the Nara Institute of Science and Technology, (NAIST) has successfully launched an initiative research project for Green Photonics Research in 2011 under governmental financial support. The International Symposium on Green Photonics for Efficient Photon-Harvesting Materials and Reactions will be held as a part of this research project. This symposium will provide all participants a precious chance to touch advanced scientific topics and scope for future research in materials science, ultimately contributing to the sustainable and lasting development of our societies.
