Professor Leon Glebov presents short course at Photonics West 2017

On Sunday, January 29, Professor Leon Glebov presented a short course titled "Volume Bragg gratings – New optical components providing unique means" at Photonics West 2017 in San Francisco, California.

This course explains basic principles and applications of volume Bragg gratings (VBGs) that are holographic optical elements recorded in volume of photo-thermo-refractive optical glass. These elements enable dramatic increase of brightness of lasers and resolution of spectral analyzers. The goal of the course is to describe features of photosensitive optical glass , properties of VBGs, principles of gratings modeling and design, main types of optical components based on VBGs, and amazing results of their use in lasers and photonic devices. People who want to bring lasers and photonic devices to a new level will benefit from taking this course.
Learning Outcomes
  • learn properties of holographic photo-thermo-refractive glass
  • identify optical beams and pulses transformations produced by different types of VBGs
  • describe VBGs’ applications
  • determine the problems that could be solved by VBGs
  • calculate parameters of VBGs that provide necessary functionality of laser and photonics systems
  • use VBGs for spectral and angular selection, pulses stretching and compression, and spectral and coherent beam combining
