The 5th International Conference on the Physics of Optical Materials and Devices

Igalo, Montenegro, 27th to 31st August 2018




Plenary speakers


Andries Meijerink

Andries Meijerink

Andries Meijerink leads an active research group working in the field of luminescence of inorganic solids. In all his research, both the (chemical) synthesis of the luminescent materials and the measurement (including laser spectroscopy) and modeling are important. Within his group two lines of research can be distinguished:

Luminescence of rare earth ions. This research focuses on understanding the energy-level structure and luminescence of rare earth ions and using the acquired knowledge for, for example, more efficient lighting, better solar cells, and faster scintillators.

Optical spectroscopy of quantum dots. Quantum dots are nanocrystals of semiconductors which, due to their small size, have properties that are determined by the size of the nanocrystal. The research focuses on understanding the size-dependent properties and application of quantum dots as luminous labels for bio-active molecules.
