We welcomed Dr. Chie Hosokawa, Research fellow of Biomedical Research Institute, AIST and Dr. Hidenori Nagai, Research group Leader of Advanced Medical Devices Research Group, Biomedical Research Institute, AIST.
They both gave lectures about their research activities, which attracted audience for the precious opportunity to hear lectures about different fields. biological sensing. Participants seemed to listen attentively to their talk.
In the questionnaire which we repossessed after the colloquium, we could 
get opinions like "Even though biotechnologies are outside their fields, what is spoken was very interesting for the applied actual cases shown in the lecture".
We would like to appreciate for the two of special guest speakers and participants.

Annual International Day of Light that will take place every year on May 16, beginning in 2018. Although the International Year of Light ended over a year ago, many of the activities that were started in 2015 continue today, and indeed are being developed further and amplified worldwide. UNESCO itself has provided us with a fantastic opportunity for the future with its Executive Board endorsing an annual *International Day of Light*. We got this announcement as an International Year of Light Partner from Light2015 Secretariat.

On January 26, 2017 the 9th Photonics Symposium “Photonics and Innovation” was held by Osaka University Photonics Center at Otemachi Sankei Plaza in Tokyo.

President of Osaka University, Shojiro Nishio, gave the opening talk about the university’s photonics research strategy, followed by the greeting speech of Masato Masaki from Science and Technology Policy Bureau, MEXT. 

Prof. Masuo Aizawa, Program Director of JST, talked about innovation in science technology, and Prof. Satoshi Kawata of Osaka University and the former Executive Director of the Photonics Center, talked about the photonics from an academic point of view.

Prof. Din Ping Tsai from Academia Sinica, National Taiwan University, gave a lecture on “Plasmonic Metasurface for Optical Applications in Demand”, and Prof. Gerd Leuchs from Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen, Germany, gave a lecture with the title of “The Science of Light?? from Nano Photonics to Information Science".

 

In the afternoon some of the Photonics Center’s achievements were introduced. Prof. Yasushi Inouye, Executive Director of the Photonics Center, gave the Center’s overview.  Mr. Kei Shinada, researcher of our partner, Shimazu Corporation, talked about how they succeeded in commercialization through collaboration researches.  Prof. Yusuke Mori and Prof. Junichi Takahara talked about their achievements in entrepreneurial/product developments.

Then there was a panel discussion on the strategies for photonics innovation.

 

At the poster sessions presented by the 21 PARC laboratories, researchers and participants of the symposium had informative discussions.

 

We, as the organizer, would like to pay our sincere gratitude to those who supported and attended the symposium.

On January 6, we received a visit from 12 officials from METI and AIST.

Mr. Hiroyuki Suematsu, Director-General of METI’s Industrial Science and Technology Policy and Environment Bureau, and other 11 officials from METI, METI Kansai and AIST visited the Photonics Center and observed the facility on January 6, 2017.   

Prof. Noriyoshi Kikuchi, Deputy Director of the Office for University-Industry Collaboration of Osaka University, explained the framework of our collaboration with the industry/government/academia.  Prof. Yasushi Inouye, Executive Director of the Photonics Center, and Prof. Junichi Takahara gave an outline of the Center’s activities and showed them some laboratories of our partner companies (IDEC Corp., Sosho Inc., and Nanophoton Corporation) as well as our state-of-the-art microscope research laboratory.

Especially, they had great interest in our achievements in entrepreneurial and product development including:

- Shimazu and IDEC’s laser diffraction method for ultrafine bubble measurement, which is highly anticipated to be utilized in the fine bubble applied industry worldwide.

- Sosho and Osaka University’s high quality CLBO (a nonlinear optical borate crystal), which is soon to be commercialized under a brand name “Osaka CLBO” and expected to contribute to the further development of semiconductor manufacturing.

- Osaka University’s nano Raman scattering microscope, which is developed by Nanophoton as a commercial product and now on the market as the most advanced microscope for a variety of industries.

The “Global Nanophotonics 2016” symposium was held at Osaka International Convention Center 

during November 30 – December 1, 2016, as the kick-off symposium of JSPS Core-to-Core Program,

 which promotes the collaboration of Osaka University titled with “Advanced Nanophotonics in the 

Emerging Fields of Nano-imaging, Spectroscopy, Nonliner Optics, Plasmonics/Metamaterials and Devices”

  Many researchers and students from partner institutions in other 10 countries (China, Taiwan, 

Singapore, Philippines, South Korea, India, Australia, UK, USA and Hong Kong) got together in Osaka with 

exchanging their latest research and discussing about the further promotion of the program.

  For this two-day symposium, we had a total number of 115 participants that included researchers and 

students with 22 oral presentations and 58 poster presentations.

  We believe that the symposium provided wide-ranging discussion with enthusiastic atmosphere and the 

significant opportunity to know their field each other further.
