III-V Epi CTO to co-host laser workshop


Richard Hogg to help lead European Semiconductor Laser Workshop at ECOC in Glasgow

III-V Epi CTO, Richard Hogg, will help lead this year’s European Semiconductor Laser Workshop (ESLW), hosted at the University of Glasgow, on Saturday 30th September.

Hogg, who is professor of Photonics at Aston University, is sharing the leadership with Scott Watson, Conference Chair; Kevin Gallacher, Programme Committee Chair; and Stephen Sweeney.

ESLW enables participants to stay up-to-date on all aspects of semiconductor laser development, including the physics, engineering, manufacture, and applications. The workshop takes place alongside ECOC, the European exhibition for the fibre optic communications industry, also held in Glasgow.

ESLW’s keynote speaker this year is Eric Tournie, from the University of Montpellier, France, with invited speakers Alessia Pasquazi, Loughborough University, UK; Sylvie Menezo, SCINTIL Photonics, France; Una Marvet, Alter Technology, UK; Dag Schmidt, Menlo Systems, Germany; Paul Crump, Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Germany; and Kouichi Akahane, NICT, Japan.

Workshop topics will include dynamic phenomena in semiconductor lasers; long wavelength lasers, including QCL and ICL; photonic crystal, nanoscale, and surface emission lasers; all-optical processing; new material systems, structures, and technologies; laser comb and millimetre wave generation; optical amplifiers; PIC’s, integrated devices and lasers on silicon.
