Fax: +39-11-5647399 This volume contains a selection of the papers presented at the International Workshop on Quantum Well Infrared Photodetectors (QWIP 2002), which was held at Castello di Pavone, Torino, Italy, from 13 to 17 October 2002. Like the previous editions, QWIP2002 covers many aspects of quantum-well, quantum-wire and quantum-dot infrared photodetectors. Scientific and technical groups are presenting the latest advances in fundamental research, technologies and applications. The program included 36 talks, a panel session and several informal discussion opportunities among participants. The proceedings are organized in four main sections: (1) QWIP Physics and Devices; (2) Applications of Quantum Well Infrared Photodetectors; (3) Theory of Quantum Well Infrared Photodetectors; (4) Quantum Dot Infrared Photodetectors. The possibility of seeing beyond the spectral range of the human eye vision is a primary need in the fields of civil surveillance, industrial process control, medicine, environment, defense and astrophysics. Aim of the workshop has been to address the future research in the field, through a better understanding of technological processes, device design, and photodetection mechanisms determining device performances. The state of the art of the methods and technologies able to improve thermal imaging technology has been defined. All results, methods and technologies presented have provided an useful input for the attendees. The free exchange of ideas among scientists from different countries will support researchers to develop their scientific and technological work in order to preserve their excellence. The consolidation/creation of high co-operation potential among participants has represented a further result of the Workshop. The high standard of this conference is, of course, due to many persons and institutions. We would like to thank to all conference participants for their committment. We are grateful to the authors who have contributed to these proceedings. A special mention is deserved to the sponsors: Air Force Research Laboratory, Space Vehicles Directorate, USA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, USA IST, Information Society Technologies Programme of the European Commission NEST, National Enterprise for nanoScience and nanoTechnology, INFM, Italy Physics Department, Turin Polytechnic, Italy whose contribution made possible the conduction of this Workshop.
