Seminar: “Optical Ceramics”, Dr. Gaume
Thursday, October 28, 2010 / 11:00am-12:00pm

Romain Gaume
Dept of Applied Physics, Stanford University

Optical ceramics have solved recognized and important issues related to
the fabrication of bulk single-crystals. In the last decade, these
materials have been produced in large sizes with optical and mechanical
performance exceeding that of single-crystals. In particular, combined
with the ability to control doping profiles, transparent ceramics offer
new potentials to design efficient and high-power lasers. In this talk,
we will discuss specific aspects of the fabrication of transparent
ceramics for solid-state laser and nuclear detector applications.

Romain Gaume received a MS degree in Chemistry in 1999 and a PhD in
Materials Science from Paris University in 2002. He is presently
Research Associate at the Applied Physics Department of Stanford
University. His research interests include laser and scintillator
materials and particularly the fabrication of optical ceramics. He is a
member of the American Ceramic Society.
