Advanced Solid State Lasers Conference (ASSL)


Materials are the basis for the technology covered by ASSL, and the meeting encompasses advances in optics, materials science, condensed matter physics and chemistry relevant to the development, characterization and applications of new materials and components for any kind of coherent radiation sources and photonics. These include crystals, glasses and ceramics, as well as functionalized composite materials, from fibers and waveguides to engineered structures with pre-assigned optical properties. Materials used for fabrication of basic sources components are also a core part of the meeting.

  • Materials as gain media for lasers and amplifiers
  • Advances in crystal growth and fabrication of glasses and ceramics
  • Glass and crystal fibers and waveguides
  • Advanced semiconductors for sources and detectors
  • Nonlinear materials for frequency conversion
  • Electro-optical and magneto-optical materials
  • Saturable absorbers
  • Advances in mirrors, gratings and other selective components
  • Novel approaches and materials for lasers — topological photonics, plasmonics, 2D materials
  • Advanced coating technologies including surface micro-structuring
  • Materials and components for thermal management and high damage threshold
