Book of abstract The Fourth International Workshop on Advanced Spectroscopy and Optical Materials


  • M Grinberg,
  • Piotr Bojarski


The papers published in present issue of Optical Materials were selected from the manuscripts submitted to the 4th International Workshop on Advanced Spectroscopy and Optical Materials (IWASOM’13), which was held at the Institute of Experimental Physics, University of Gdańsk, Poland 14–19 July 2013. The Workshop was jointly organized by Institute of Experimental Physics University of Gdańsk, Institute of Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Polish Physical Society, Branch in Gdańsk and Foundation of Development of Gdańsk University. Organizers are pleased to acknowledge the sponsorship of Ministry of Science and Higher Education Republic of Poland in the form of the special grant. Workshop provided an interdisciplinary forum for presentation of most recent developments in physics and chemistry of optical materials, bulk, layers and nanocrystals. 149 abstracts have been accepted for presentation. This number includes 3 key lectures, 24 invited lectures, 34 oral presentations and 88 posters. The program consisted of 15 oral sessions and 1 poster session. There were 129 participants at IWASOM’13 from 22 countries. We would like to appreciate the excellent scientific level of all presentations. To stimulate interdisciplinary communication and benefit young scientists, especially graduate students three key lectures on upconversion spectroscopy in rare earth ions, photodynamic therapy using nanoparticles and surface states of topological crystalline insulators were added in the program of IWASOM’13. The selected articles presented in the issue provide insight into fundamental principles and modeling, fabrication, processing and characterization of optical materials. We do hope that informal atmosphere of the meeting, social program and excursions will help to inspire further collaboration between participants of the workshop in the future. We wish to thank Professor Georges Boulon, the Editor of Optical Materials and the Elsevier staff for having offered us the possibility of publishing the selected papers from the IWASOM’13 in the Special Issue. We gratefully acknowledge the enthusiastic work of all members of local Organizing Committee and to express our gratitude to members of International Scientific Committee for their important contribution and guidance. We would like to express our thanks to the authors and reviewers for their contribution to this Special Issue.
