XIV Brazilian MRS meeting
The Brazilian Materials Research Society (B-MRS) and the Organizing Committee of the XIV Brazilian MRS meeting invite the worldwide community of materials research to attend the 2015 Meeting that will be held at the SulAmerica Convention Center in Rio de Janeiro, from 27 September to 01 October, 2015. This traditional forum will be dedicated to recent advances and perspectives in materials science and technology.
Scope of the Symposium
Photonic materials are among the forefront enabling technologies to address successfully social-economical challenges that we are facing in many fields of technological interest.
Celebrating the International Year of Light in 2015, this Symposium aims to provide insight into the fabrication, characterization and exploitation of photonic materials and structures based on different inorganic, hybrid, and green materials in the form of fibers, thin films and other small functional nanomaterials and nanocomposites.
Focus will be on fundamental principles, modeling and fabrication of novel material for the intelligent management of light including e.g. optical glasses, luminescent and laser materials, smart optical fibers, active plasmonic materials, novel confined nano-microstructures, etc.
Abstracts will be solicited in (but not limited to) the following areas
Theoretical background:1. Luminescence mechanisms, with particular interest in fundamental principles; 2. Management of light by linear and nonlinear optical processes; 3. Fundamental phenomena, theory, modeling, and simulation
Fabrication, thin-film growth, microstructuring of photonic materials
Rare earth doped glasses, photosensitive glasses, transparent glass ceramics
Innovative fabrication techniques, laser material processing
Waveguides, microcavities, and integrated structures
Nanodevices and nanophotonics, subwavelength integrated structures
Luminescent systems, luminescent nanostructured materials
