Materials and devices for green photonics

While photonics is expected to provide high efficient and low-cost devices for telecom, data processing or sensing, green photonics additionally explores low-consuming and energy-saver optical based solutions. Appropriate material use is a key element for green photonic component development.


The aim of the symposium is to review last developments on materials for green photonics which will very likely bring breakthroughs in photonic device performances within a short reach. Since diversified functions are required on integrated photonic circuits, relevant materials have been classified in five groups, which will also correspond to five sessions:

  • Non-linearity for photonics: χ(2) and χ(3) , magneto-photonics based devices
  • Organic and inorganic nanomaterials for optical sources
  • New materials for plasmonics: graphene, Aluminum, doped semiconductor
  • Artificial nanomaterials
  • Nanomaterial and nanostructures for optical sensors

For each of these topics, the purpose is to update participants on performances of recently studied materials for photonics, and to identify the most promising ones in terms of material elaboration, structuration, properties and expected device energy consumption reduction. The final objective is to shed light on these new solutions. In order to cover large view on these topics, invited talks will present state of the arts on each relevant research area, and/or focus on a recent hot research result.

Besides, since the symposium is proposed by the sino-french network PHOTONET, the additional purpose is to present the common work performed since 2015 within the network, and to enlarge the scope of its research at a European and global levels.

Hot topics to be covered by the symposium:

  • Non-linearity induced by materials like chalcogenides, functional oxides, carbon-based materials
  • Non-reciprocal waveguiding induced by magneto-plasmonics
  • Integrated optical sources based on the combination of organic and inorganic materials
  • Graphene, aluminum or doped semiconductor for plasmonic like behavior
  • Metamaterials and artificial materials
