The first China-Russia bilateral forum on New Optical Materials and Techniques was held in Shanghai, Nov. 15-20, 2009. This forum was hosted by Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and was organized by Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SICCAS).
About 40 experts and researchers of optic functional materials and engineering research field from the Russia Academy of Sciences(RAS) and CAS participated this forum. The vice director of CAS, Professor CHEN Lidong , the director of the Key Laboratory of transparent and opto-functional advanced inorganic material of CAS, Professor ZHAO Jingtai and the vice director of the laboratory, Professor XU Jun , took part in the forum as the organizing committee members.
The forum mainly focused on the new development and prospective views of optical materials and techniques. The topics included the laser materials, laser techniques, nonlinear optical materials, scintillation and fluorescent materials. About 22 relevant experts were invited to give talks according to the topics of this forum, and to present their recent development and prospective views of optical materials and techniques.
Professor Dianov, the director of the Fiber Optical Research Center, Ioffe Pysicotechnical Institute of CAS, as the head of Russia delegation, introduced their latest progress in optical materials and laser technology. The Chinese delegates from Institutes of CAS also gave talks and communicated with Russia researchers. During the discussion, Professor Jingtai Zhao, Professor Jun Xu and Professor Guorong Li reported the achievements in scintillation crystals, Bi doped crystals and electro-optical properties of optical ferroelectric ceramics respectively.
The Russia delegation also visited SICCAS and Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility. The forum strengthened the collaboration between CAS and RAS and has developed a cooperation and exchange platform for the material scientists from China and Russia.
