III–V Epi CTO Richard Hogg co-leading European Semiconductor Laser Workshop
III–V Epi Ltd of Glasgow, Scotland, UK — which provides a molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) service for custom compound semiconductor wafer design, manufacturing, test and characterization — says that its chief technology officer professor Richard Hogg is helping to lead the 46th European Semiconductor Laser Workshop (ESLW 2023), hosted on 30 September at the University of Glasgow’s Sir Charles Wilson Building. ESLW takes place alongside the 49th European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC 2023) in Glasgow (1–5 October).
Hogg, who is Professor of Photonics at Aston University, is sharing the leadership on the ESLW Organizing Committee with Conference chair Dr Scott Watson, Programme Committee chair Dr Kevin Gallacher, and professor Stephen Sweeney.
ESLW’s keynote speaker this year is professor Eric Tournie, from France’s University of Montpellier. The invited speakers are Alessia Pasquazi of the UK’s Loughborough University; Sylvie Menezo of SCINTIL Photonics, France; Una Marvet, of Alter Technology in the UK; Dag Schmidt of Menlo Systems in Germany; Paul Crump of Germany’s Ferdinand-Braun-Institut; and Kouichi Akahane of Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT).
Workshop topics include dynamic phenomena in semiconductor lasers; long-wavelength lasers, including quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) and interband cascade lasers (ICLs); photonic crystal, nanoscale, and surface-emission lasers; all-optical processing; new material systems, structures, and technologies; laser comb and millimeter-wave generation; optical amplifiers; photonic integrated circuits (PICs), integrated devices and lasers on silicon.
