Session 7: Rare-earth and transition metal-doped glasses and ceramics for photonic applications

Rare-earth and transition-metal doped materials are playing crucial roles in photonics as optical fiber amplifiers, lasers at various wavelengths, phosphors for displays and solid-state lighting as well as recent bio-imaging probe utilizing upconversion or persistent luminescence of the ions. This session will cover the topics on:


  • Glass and transparent ceramic lasers
  • Ceramic phosphors for solid-state lighting
  • Wavelength converters for photovoltaic systems
  • Nanoprobe phosphors for biophotonics
  • Energy transfer or light storage mechanisms in solids
  • d-d, f-f and f-d transitions in glass and ceramics
  • Optical amplifiers for telecommunication
