TC20 : Optoelectronics

TC20 focuses on glasses finding their application in optoelectronics and photonics. All the aspects of research & development are considered, going from design and fundamental properties to characterization and applications. In the recent years much attention has been devoted to new materials (glasses and glass-ceramics) for Lighting and Solar Energy. TC20 promotes international collaborations and sponsors international Workshops and Conferences relevant to the field.

2017 Activity - a short report

The main activity in 2017 has been constituted by the organization of PRE'17, the Seventh International Workshop on Photoluminescence in Rare Earths: Photonic Materials and Devices, which was held in Rome, Italy, from 29 November to 2 December 2017. PRE Workshops are the flagship event of TC20; usually, they are held every other year. An exception was made when passing from PRE'16, in June 2016 in the USA, to PRE'17: the exception was due to the decision to return to the odd years, as in the beginning (the first PRE Workshop was held in 2005), in order to avoid the overlap with larger conferences.

PRE'17 co-Chairs were Dominik Dorosz, Maurizio Ferrari and Laeticia Petit. Giancarlo C. Righini was Honorary Chair.

PRE'17 was very successful, both for the technical content and for attendance: we had 140 participants from 28 countries. The technical program included 2 plenary lectures, 14 invited lectures, 61 oral communications and 60 poster presentations. Several TC20 members attended the workshop and contributed to its high scientific level. The sponsors included, besides ICG, the Italian Society of Optics and Photonics, the Italian Society of Physics, and other public and private institutions (Centro Fermi,, FBK, CAEN, IFN CNR, ENEA). Thanks to the support by and the Japanese "Mixed-Anions" MEXT project, 3 awards were assigned to as many students for best poster presentations. At the end, it was communicated that, for unanimous decision of the Steering Committee of the PRE Workshops, PRE'19  will be held in Nice, France, in the Autumn 2019.

The TC20 Committee meets at least once per year. The 2017 meeting was held in Rome, on 2 December 2017, just after the closing session of PRE'17.  The meeting was attended by Rolindes Balda, Dominik Dorosz, Ciro Falcony, Maurizio Ferrari, Laeticia Petit, Giancarlo Righini, and Setsuhisa Tanabe; Joaquin Fernandez was a guest. The update of TC20 membership and the Committee activities, both ongoing and planned, were discussed there.

A summary of the main 2017 activities by TC20 members is presented here:

Special Publications

G. C. Righini, S. Jiang and F. Prudenzano were Guest Editors of a Special Issue of the journal Fibers entitled "Advances in Optical Fibers II". The issue included, among others, an important review paper authored by some TC20 members (J. Ballato, H. Ebendorff-Heidepriem, J. Zhao, L. Petit, J. Troles, Glass and process development for the next generation of optical fibers: a review, Fibers 5, 11 (2017); doi:10.3390/fib5010011).

Collaborative Research Projects

Some TC20 members keep participating in the European Action COST MP1401 “Advanced fibre laser and coherent source as tools for society, manufacturing and life science”. S. Taccheo is chair of the action, and L. Petit is Management Committee (MC) member; J.-L. Adam and D. Dorosz are MC substitutes.

M. Ferrari was participating in the European project RECOLA (Recovery of lanthanides), which proposes the development of methodologies for extracting rare earth (and other metals) from e-waste to enable efficient waste management and the reintroduction of the economy of secondary raw materials. RECOLA also involves groups from Argentina, Brazil and Peru. 

Conference Organization

J. Ballato co-organized several international conferences, including the "Rare-Earth Doped Glasses and Ceramics for Photonic Applications" symposium at the 12th Pacific Rim Conference on Ceramic and Glass Technology (PACRIM 12, Waikoloa, Hawaii, May 2017) and the 5th Workshop on Specialty Optical Fibers and Their Applications (WSOF2017, Limassol, Cyprus, October 2017).

D. Dorosz was chair of organising committee of the 17th International Conference on "Optical Fibers and Their Application", Suprasl, Poland, 23-27 January 2017.

S. Jiang served as OPTO symposium co-Chair at Photonics West (San Francisco, January 2017) and General co-Chair of the Advanced Solid State Laser Congress (Nagoya, Japan, October 2017).

Aims and planned activities

The main goal of TC20 is to keep monitoring the international trends in optoelectronic/photonic glasses, contributing to the advances of scientific knowledge in this area and disseminating information on photonic glasses. Outreach will be an important part of the Committee's activity. The global aim is to maintain the centrality of glass in the next generations’ optoelectronic devices; particular attention is therefore devoted to advanced and novel materials, such as glass ceramics, hybrid glasses, nanostructured glasses.

TC20's research activities are very much concerned with materials for “Green Photonics”. In the next years the following topics are anticipated as of particular interest:

  • Glass Ceramic Phosphors for Solid-state Lighting,
  • Persistent phosphors,
  • New glasses and fibers for fiber lasers and nonlinear optics,
  • New materials and process for infrared imaging and sensing,
  • Optical computing becoming more practical based on new materials.
  • New materials for Lighting and Solar Energy.  

2018 Planned Activities

ICG Annual Meeting 2018: TC20 organizes a topical section on "Glasses for 21st century photonic technologies", under the coordination of Setsuhisa Tanabe and Giancarlo C. Righini, in the frame of the ICG Meeting in Yokohama (23-26 September 2018). Several TC20 members will actively participate to the sessions (6 parallel sessions during the three days) which sum up a total of 33 oral presentations (11 invited).

Inter-TCs Collaboration: Contacts have been taken with TC03 "Glass Structure" and TC28 “Glass fibres for reinforcement and insulation” in order to explore the possibility of common activities. An informal meeting is being organized during ICG2018 to start the discussion on a few topics of common interest. 

Committee Meetings:  A few Committee members informally met in Québec City during the 21st International Symposium on Non-Oxide and New Optical Glasses (ISNOG), 17-21 June 2018 [see a photo below].

The main meeting of the TC20 Committee in 2018 will be held during the ICG Annual Meeting in Yokohama, on September 23rd, starting at 4:15 p.m. in the room 415 (4th floor) of the Pacifico Yokohama Convention Center.
