Abstract:

This is the final report of the Management Committee Meeting, COST European Cooperation in the Field of Scientific and Technical Research 288, Nanoscale and Ultrafast Photonics. The original aim of the action was to investigate sub-wavelength scale feature size for optical confinement and control and nanoscale carrier confinement for novel opto-electronic devices for photonic devices for communication devices at the 1.3 and 1.5 micron wavelength ranges. Overall the action was a success with many European groups meeting through COST 288 and continuing their interaction. Subjects covered Materials Quantum wells QWs, Quantum DotsQDs-to understand how confinement affects properties for various semiconductor materials Laser Dynamicsunderstanding carrier dynamics in QWs and QDs and how it impacts in physics and devices Fabrication how to fabricate low dimensional structures and devices Introduction to System Specifications What do optical systems communications chiefly need from devices Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers what are they, how are they used in systems, what does low dimensionality give you Mode-locked lasers How they work,what determines their performance and how low dimensionality affects them. Future Applications Biological, Treahertz and Plasmonics.
