Session 1: Photon and glass interaction
With the technology advancement and the broad application of glass in electronic devices and information technology, the interaction between photon and glass is becoming a critical topic of research. Applications, such as plasma cleaning, ultraviolet cleaning, and ultraviolet curing, involve high-energy high-intensity photons, where the interaction of photon on glass generates electron or hole centers. Photons in the form of laser pulses can be tuned to cover a wide range of time, temporal, and energy scales. This session will focus on the fundamental understanding of the generation and identification of defect centers. The effect from photon energy, energy density, and pulse frequency as well as glass-matrix and existing multivalent species in the glass will be covered during the session.
