, by Mikhael Myara

17 - 19 November 2015
University of Montpellier, 34095 Montpellier France
Location: Institut de Botanique, 163 Rue Auguste Broussonnet, Montpellier


This third European workshop will last 3 days, with invited tutorials in selected topics, selected oral presentations, exhibitors, working meeting, lab tour, social events.

This European workshop aims to bring together relevant academics and companies working in the field of Vertical-External-Cavity-Surface-Emitting-Laser for Photonic Applications (agro- environment, security, metrology, inertial sensor, Atmospheric physics, lidar...), to present and discuss the research advances and technological breakthroughs in this new field. This workshop is open to young researchers (PhD student, postdoc). Young researchers are warmly encouraged to submit their work.
The workshop program will includes invited tutorials in various fields, in oral sessions, and exhibitors demonstrating industrial products in various fields.

The workshop covers all topics related to Vertical-External-Cavity-Surface-Emitting-Laser and its photonic applications. Both academic and industrial participants are welcome :

  • Design, Growth, Technology, and High Power
  • Spectral coverage and Non-linear conversion
  • Modelocking & Frequency Combs
  • Noise, Coherence and fundamental properties
  • New concepts
  • Fundamental and industrial applications

This event is sponsored by the CNRS RENATECH, UM2-IES, SFO.
