Oxides constitute the most versatile class of inorganic materials, and single crystals provide superior as well as homogeneous properties. Such crystals are used as optical, piezoelectric, or laser materials, and as substrates for piezoelectric and oxide electronic applications. As oxide crystals appear in many crystallographic structures and can be formed from nearly every element in the periodic table, the preparation of novel materials as well as the improvement of their structural quality is key for providing materials with improved or even novel characteristics.
This 6th German-French Workshop on Oxide, Dielectric and Laser single crystal (WODIL) is a continuation of the DGKK meetings on “Crystals for lasers and NLO” and previous workshops organized at FEE in Idar Oberstein (2011, 2014), ISL in Saint Louis (2012, 2015) and IKZ in Berlin (2016).
In 2017, the present workshop WODIL will be held for the first time at the Institute of Condensed Matter Chemistry of Bordeaux (ICMCB). It is organized by the CNRS network CRISTECH (Crystal Growth Technologies) under the aegis of the French Association of Crystallography (AFC) and the German Society of Crystal Growth (DGKK). Moreover the CNRS network CMDO (Micro-nano-structured crystals and optical devices), ICMCB, the Région Nouvelle Aquitaine and the University of Bordeaux are associated to this event.
This workshop brings together scientists and scholars from industry, research labs, and universities to present and discuss the recent advances in the field of oxide crystals, dielectric materials, laser and non-linear optical crystals, solid-state lasers, and related topics.
Please feel free to contact us ahead of the workshop if you wish to secure a one-to-one meeting with Marie-Hélène LEMÉE-CAILLEAU, who will be attending this event.
