Germany To Host 27th ISLC Conference


Ferdinand-Braun-Institut to organise semiconductor laser conference in October 2021

In 2021, the International Semiconductor Laser Conference (ISLC) will be held in Germany for the first time in nineteen years. The conference is scheduled from 10th to 14th October in Potsdam. Abstracts can be submitted until 14 May 2021.

The ISLC is dedicated to latest developments in semiconductor lasers, amplifiers and LEDs. ISLC 2021 and the associated exhibition are organised by the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Berlin and supported by IEEE Photonics Society as technical sponsor.

Topics include: semiconductor optical amplifiers, silicon compatible lasers, VCSELs, photonic band-gap and microcavity lasers, grating controlled lasers, multi-segment and ring lasers, quantum cascade and interband laser, sub-wavelength scale nanolasers, mid IR and THz sources, InP, GaAs and Sb materials, quantum dot lasers, high power and high-brightness lasers, GaN and ZnSe based UV to visible lasers and LEDs, communications lasers, semiconductor integrated optoelectronics.

A full list of 2021 topics and committees, including many confirmed plenary and invited speakers as well as workshops is provided on the conference website

All accepted and presented papers will be published on IEEE Xplore, adding to the more than 30 years of ISLC proceedings already available. The ISLC also gives authors the opportunity to submit an expanded version of their conference article to a special issue of IEEE Photonics Journal that will follow after the conference.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
