E-MRS 2011 Fall Meeting - Symposium J
Rare earth doped semiconductors and nanostructures for photonics
The symposium will highlight hot topics in lighting, electronics/photonics integration, sensing, plasmonics, terahertz applications and other novel RE-doped semiconductors. Fundamental studies of optical processes, new approaches to photonic devices, and particularly nanostructured materials will be covered.
Rare earth doped materials continue to play a hugely important role in photonics and optoelectronics. More traditional applications such as phosphors and fibre amplifiers remain vibrant fields, but newer materials and devices based on rare earth doped semiconductors are offering exciting new possibilities. Efficient solid-state lighting based on rare earth doped wide bandgap semiconductors will increasingly play a role in new green technologies, while rare earth doped semiconductor nanostructures open up possibilities for photonic/electronic integration and cheap CMOS-compatible optical sources. More recent work still suggests a bright future for rare-earth doped semiconductors in fields as diverse as optical storage, sensing, terahertz generation and spintronics.
This is intended to be a symposium aimed at those in the photonics community who are interested in understanding, exploiting and further developing the optical properties of rare-earth doped semiconductors. Although structural and electrical studies will be covered, this will only be insofar as they support research into optical properties. Rare earths in glasses, phosphors and rare earths in oxides for laser gain media will be excluded. We particularly encourage submissions dealing with nanostructured materials or devices; rare-earths in GaN for lighting; electrically pumped devices; fundamental studies of excitation and luminescence processes. Recent developments in each of these areas paint the picture of a vibrant and rapidly developing field that draws together researchers from a variety of Materials disciplines. The symposium aims to bring together this diverse community to review the state-of-the-art and to discuss future developments and challenges. We particularly encourage submissions from younger researchers and those exploring new directions.
