ICT COST Action 299
Optical Fibres for New Challenges Facing the Information Society

Developed societies require more and more information for their safety and for their economic development. Optical technologies are an essential actor owing to their tremendous capability to transmit and process a high density of information. Optical fibres are a key component for these technologies and their potential for optical processing and for collecting information as sensing probe is still widely unexplored.

This Action fills this gap by bringing solutions for processing information and sensing using specific linear or nonlinear effects in standard, doped and micro-structured fibres.
