EQuS Incubator: Australian Workshop on the Angular Momentum of Light

From ultra-fast internet to medical applications, manufacturing to personal computers, the photonics technologies based on the control of light have profoundly transformed our society. We have been able to tame most of the properties of light to our benefit: the colour, power, the duration of pulses. Only recently we have found that one property, the optical angular momentum can help us to give an extra boost to the photonics technologies.
