Description: Frontiers in Optics and Photonics (FOP11) is thirty-sixth in the series of annual symposia­ of the Optical Society of India. This Symposium is being organized by the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, which has significantly contributed to the growth of the field of optics and photonics in several ways since its inception in 1961. This Symposium being organized at IIT Delhi, especially as a part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations of the Institute.

This Book of Abstracts contains one page summary of the papers that are being presented at the Symposium in two plenary sessions, 18 technical sessions and 3 poster sessions, comprising of 4 plenary talks, 40 invited talks, 44 oral presentations and 152 poster presentations. A summary of the keynote address by Christopher Dainty, the President of the OSA is also included. These presentations cover a wide variety of topics from optical design and instrumentation to fiber lasers, sensors and nonlinear optics.
