ANNOUNCEMENT==> 

Lasers Seminar 

  DATE: 22-02-2011 

  TIME: 3:30pm (Tue) 

  PLACE: Physics building (#54) room 207 

TITLE: 
Recent advancement in non-linear optics using quasi phase-matched materials 

SPEAKER: 
Dr. Pinhas Blau, Applied Physics Division, SOREQ NRC 

ABSTRACT/COMMENTS:
Wavelength conversion by non-linear optical interaction in crystals 
is a mature technology, presently implemented in many devices for 
generation of laser beam in otherwise unattainable wavelengths. 
Advancements in solid state laser technology and in non-linear optical 
crystals enable realization of advanced frequency converted laser 
devices as well as implementation of non-linear optics to other 
applications. 
The basic principles and configurations of non-linear optical 
interaction in microstructured materials will be presented. 
Recent advancement in non-linear materials development, such as 
vapor transport equilibrated periodically poled Lithium Tantalate, 
and periodically oriented GaAs waveguide will be presented. 
Some device applications of present and predictable technology, such 
as optical signal processing and monolithic diode laser wavelength 
conversion will be discussed.
