Bragg Gratings, Photosensitivity and Poling in Waveguides and Materials (BGPP)


BGPP addresses all aspects of grating structures, photosensitivity, glass relaxation and poling in optical fiber and waveguides from physical fundamentals, properties and fabrication approaches to applications.

BGPP continues to be a cutting-edge meeting for covering state-of-the-art advances on laser written devices in waveguides and bulk optical materials including crystals, oxide and non-oxide glasses. The program is tailored for informal exchanges, forming new partnerships, and reconnecting with colleagues and industry in a relaxed atmosphere. Attendees come from around the world to participate in this exchange of knowledge. The meeting topics are divided into three main themes: 1/ fundamentals of laser processing, relaxation and poling in optical materials, 2/ fabrication techniques, properties and modeling of laser written devices, and 3/ applications of laser written devices, glass relaxation and poling.
