PIERS2017 St Petersburg Focus/Special Sessions  
Nanolasers: Physics, Technology, Applications
Organized by Prof. Eli Kapon (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL))
Session's Information:
NANOLASERS: Physics, Technology and Applications
A special Session at PIERS 2017, Saint Petersburg, Russia
Organizer: Prof. Eli Kapon Laboratory of Physics of Nanostructures Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) Switzerland
Laser systems have been constantly miniaturized over the last half-century, mainly for practical reasons, e.g., for reducing power consumption and facilitating integration in complex optoelectronic systems. These devices have reached the nanoscale in the last decade owing to exciting developments in nanoscience and nanotechnology. At the same time, the nanoscale dimension of lasing systems necessitates the consideration of new phenomena, novel technologies, innovative applications, and even new definitions and interpretations of “lasing”.
This workshop attempts to assemble both leaders in this emerging field, as well as young and more experienced scientists interested in it, for discussions of relevant issues and future directions in NANOLASERS. An important part of the discussion will be devoted to “practical” nanolasers that can be used in, or open the way for, future applications.
Topics of discussion will include:
-Phenomenology of lasing in small systems -Photon statistics, noise and fluctuations -Switching and modulation of nanolasers -Parameters characterizing “lasing” -Realization of nanolaser systems -Fabrication technologies and material systems -Applications in communications, sensing, computing, quantum technologies, etc.
The special session will comprise invited and contributed talks, as well as a round-table discussion.
