Importance & Scope
Optical science is studied in many related disciplines including astronomy, various engineering fields, photography, and medicine (particularly ophthalmology and optometry). Practical applications of optics are found in a variety of technologies and everyday objects, including mirrors, lenses, telescopes, microscopes, lasers, and fiber optics. In the last 30 years lasers have become generally accepted in science and technology, as well as in industry, medicine, and protection of the environment. Optical systems are ubiquitous in modern society, from Medical sciences to space exploration, telecommunications, information processing and innumerous industrial and military applications of all kinds.
Valencia is the capital of the autonomous community of Valencia and the third largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona, with around 809,000 inhabitants in the administrative centre. Valencia is also Spain’s third largest metropolitan area, with a population ranging from 1.7 to 2.5 million. The city has global city status; the Port of Valencia is the 5th busiest container port in Europe and the largest on the Mediterranean Sea, with a trade volume of 4.21 million.
Valencia was founded as a Roman colony in 138 BC. The city is situated on the banks of the Turia, on the east coast of the Iberian Peninsula, fronting the Gulf of Valencia on the Mediterranean Sea. Its historic centre is one of the largest in Spain, with approximately 169 acres; this heritage of ancient monuments, views and cultural attractions makes Valencia one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations filled with vibrant and historical places. In Valencia a wide-scope of research take place in several areas of photonics, including information technologies, nanophotonic devices, optical sensors, ultrafast optics, optoelectronics and biophotonics. Currently there are more than 32 Photonic research institutes and nearly 45 Photonic companies.
Valencia is the centre of international and avant-garde design, and one of the most bustling cities in Europe regarding fairs and conferences. This city is an industrial centre which expanded its cultural and touristic possibilities, and transformed it into a newly vibrant city. Many restored local landmarks including the ancient Towers of the medieval city (Serrano Towers and Quart Towers), the San Miguel de los Reyes monastery holding a conservation library and whole sections of the old city, for example the Carmen Quarter are centre of attraction.
