Welcome to NFO12!


We celebrate the 20th anniversary of the international conference of Near-field Optics, Nanophotonics and Related Techniques (NFO) since its first edition in 1992.  NFO has been among the first conferences addressing optics on the nanometer scale, triggered by the fascinating prospects of near-field techniques for pushing the resolution of optical microscopy towards the molecular level. Twenty years later, a variety of novel fields that involve nanooptics and photonics have been developed, including plasmonics, metamaterials, quantum information, biosensing and ultrafast dynamics. NFO12 will cover all these fields, providing an international platform to present and discuss the latest advancements.


We hope to see all of you in Donostia - San Sebastian in September 2012 to enjoy an exciting conference in this very pleasant city. Donostia-San Sebastian has been awarded to be the European capital of culture in 2016. This award acknowledges the efforts made by the city to show a state-of-the-art cultural agenda, in addition to its astonishing landscape with a wonderful bay surrounded by urban beaches. Gastronomy also plays an important role in the city, and we hope that all the attendees of NFO12 enjoy both Science and Life in this genuine Basque city.
