Workshop _Collaborative project EXOLAS_July 1st, 201601/07 : 08h25 - 12h45
In the framework of the collaborative project EXOLAS* (LAPHIA - IdEX Bordeaux), a 1st workshop on is organized on July 1st, 2016.
This workshop is a key event to present the research results of the project and exchange about future perspectives. All members of the LAPHIA community are welcome.
> The workshop will start at 8:25 am in the auditorium of Insttitut d'Optique d'Aquitaine (Talence - Stop "Arts et Métiers" - Tramway B).

* The EXOLAS project "EXOtic LASers and optical materials" is a collaborative project initiated and supported by the Cluster LAPHIA (IdEx Bordeaux). This large scale project is coordinated by Véronique Jubera (ICMCB) in partnership with Eric Cormier (CELIA). It federates several teams from 3 laboratories : ICMCB, IMS et le CELIA.
Laser technology is based on the use of different materials that have limits in compactness, emission spectrum, lifetime or damage threshold. Nowadays, needs are huge in term of exotic wavelength generation (visible, mid-IR), compactness, robustness and mechanical or thermal stability. To compete at an international level, a multidisciplinary approach by gathering both optical area physicists and solid-state material chemists is required. We propose in the EXOLAS project a double entry to work on a new generation of laser systems and emitting materials in agreement with local industrial requirements. Building and improvement of laser cavities and, elaboration of cavity components (gain materials) will converge in an optimized solution to produce targeted wavelengths.
