La revue Photoniques n°86 - EOS Special Issue

The word of the presidents

Dear Colleague, Dear Fellow, Dear EOS member,

Optics and photonics are essential areas for advanced science and technology of the 21st century. The science of light is one of the strong fundaments of many areas, ranging from basic physics, chemistry and biology to advanced areas of application. The European Optical Society (EOS) is aiming to provide an organizational framework to scientists and engineers who work in academia and industry all across Europe.

Currently, EOS has 21 member societies, 10 of them are EOS Branches, 11 are EOS Affiliated Societies. EOS aims at developing strong ties with all of them and supports various activities of its member societies. Along that line, EOS is happy to announce a new partnership with the French journal “Photoniques”, which already serves as a periodic journal and newsletter for the members of Société Française d’Optique (SFO) with five issues per year. Today, we are proud to present the first issue of “Photoniques” in English as a special service to all EOS members.

The rationale behind EOS is indeed to contribute to the advances in optics and related sciences and to bring together the academic and industrial stakeholders of optics and photonics. Benefitting of its already more than 6,000 members, and thanks to the support of 21 learned societies representing an equal number of European countries, EOS organizes scientific workshops, conferences, exhibits, runs a scientific journal (<>) and much more. Next EOS conferences will be held at the World of Photonics Congress, June 26-29, 2019. These EOS conferences on Optical Technologies come in 4 topics: the 5th Conference on Manufacturing of Optical Systems; the 4th Conference on Optofluidics; the 2nd Conference on Light Engineering; and the 2nd Conference on Optomechanical Engineering. Note that the registration for EOS Optical Technologies conferences includes admission to ALL conferences at the World of Photonics Congress as well as free admission to the LASER World of Photonics trade fair and supporting program! In the beginning of 2017, EOS renewed co-operation agreements with several learned partner societies around the world. EOS members have now the possibility to attend most of the meetings of the EOS partner societies at member rates. These agreements strengthen the mutual collaboration between EOS and the partner societies. The agreements are made to enhance the benefits of members and to serve international optical science and engineering community. Presently, the EOS partners societies are: the Chinese Optical Society (COS); the Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP); Optical Society of Japan (OSJ); the Optical Society of Korea (OSK) and the Taiwan Photonics Society (TPS).

On its side, SFO has a long-standing tradition. With approximately 800 individual members and 40 corporate members, SFO gathers French actors in optics and photonics. SFO is a non-profit organization that promotes these two domains as scientific disciplines, and as a vector of technologic innovation in various industries which are largely related to physics phenomena and to the use of light-based technologies. SFO maintains partnerships with academics, industrials, national and international organisms. SFO is a member of the International Commission for Optics (ICO), and it is also the representative of the French community in optics at the European Optical Society (EOS). The driving force of SFO is brought by its 16 thematic clubs that cover a broad spectrum in photonics: Optical Controls and Measurements for Industry (CMOI), Optical Fibers and Networks (CFOR), Optical Thin Layers, Crystals for Optics (JNCO), Fiber optics & Networks, Optics & Applications (HORIZONS), Lasers & Quantum Optics (COLOQ), Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), Adaptative Optics (JNRIOA-AFOP), Optics & Microwaves (OMW), Guided Optics (JNOG), Photonics and Life Science (PSV), Organic Photonics (JNPO), Physics & Optical Imaging (PIO), Visualization & Image Processing in Fluid Mechanics (FLUVISU). SFO is also very concerned by the teaching of optics with a specific club devoted to the promotion of new pedagogical tools. We have also 5 geographical student clubs joint with EOS. And we are creating a new club devoted to Women in Physics joint with the Société Française de Physique (SFP).

Finally, we hope that you will find interest in the contents of this special issue and in the idea behind it. If you have not done so, visit to discover how you can contribute to this common European base, EOS, and its member societies for the development of optics in its broadest sense.

With our best wishes,
