The 6th International Workshop on Microcavities and Their Applications (WOMA 2022)

IAS LT, Lo Ka Chung Building, Lee Shau Kee Campus

The 6th WOMA will be held on the HKUST campus during the 7th -10th February 2022 in hybrid mode (in person and virtual). Scholars around the world of the optical microcavity community will share and discuss their latest work and insights in this rapidly expanding field. The four-day Workshop will include invited talks, contributed talks, student poster presentations and social activities (subject to the pandemic situation) in Hong Kong. Three Best Student Paper Awards will be awarded.


The WOMA2022 will cover cutting-edge research topics relating to optical microcavity fundamentals and applications. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Whispering-gallery-mode (WGM) resonators,
  • High-Q cavity optics,
  • Chip-integrated resonators,
  • Crystalline WGM resonators,
  • Optical microcavities in new materials,
  • Deformed or chaotic microcavities,
  • Ray dynamics and wave chaos in cavities,
  • WGM resonator-based sensors,
  • Machine learning applied to optical microcavities,
  • Optical manipulation using microcavities,
  • Microcavity lasers,
  • Nonlinear optics in WGM resonators,
  • Soliton phenomena in cavities,
  • Kerr frequency microcombs,
  • Atom-field interactions in microcavities,
  • Quantum optics in microcavities.
