Talk from Dr Jas Sanhera – 11.30am 23rd June – City University

Tomorrow we will have a talk from Dr Jas Sanhera from the US Naval Research Labs in Washington DC.

The Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC possess facilities for the synthesis of ultrahigh purity chemicals and their conversion into undoped and rare earth/transition metal ion doped glasses, glass ceramics, ceramics, and crystals that can be monolithic bulk optics, thin films, and optical fibers using selective processes such as melting, casting, sintering, sputtering, evaporation, extrusion, and fiber drawing, respectively. The linear and nonlinear optical properties of these materials are then exploited in many applications including laser power delivery, laser power generation, fluorescent sources, chem/bio sensing, and flexible photovoltaics. This talk will focus on the many different optical materials and their applications.

Hope to see some of you there!
