About this book

Introduction

This book focuses on the fundamentals, technologies and properties of ion irradiation of dielectric materials (e.g. glasses, crystals) with regard to various photonic applications. It introduces readers to diverse ion-beam techniques for the fabrication and modification of micron- or nanoscale photonic structures, including optical waveguides, photonic crystals, and nanoparticle (nano-spheres and nano-rods) systems, and presents state-of-the-art advances in this multi-disciplinary research field, demonstrating the unique capabilities of ion-beam technologies in optical dielectric materials processing.

The book discusses in detail the properties of ion-beam processed waveguides, as well as the modification of dielectrics for photonic applications, such as electro-optic modulation, nonlinear frequency conversion, waveguide amplification and lasing. It also explores synthesis and the correlated optical effects of nanoparticles by ion beams, and features examples of successful micro- and nano-photonic devices. Given its breadth of coverage, the book will particularly appeal to readers interested in ion-beam technology, materials science, and integrated optics.

Feng Chen is currently a Professor at School of Physics, Shandong University. He received his BSc. (1997) and Ph.D. (2002) degrees in Physics at Shandong Normal University and Shandong University, China, respectively. He spent 2 years at Technische Universität Clausthal (2003-2005), Germany, as an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow. His research interests include fabrication of micro-nanoscale photonic structures, optical waveguides, ion beam modification of nanomaterials, laser writing, plasmonics, lasers, and nonlinear optics, etc. He has more than 300 papers and 4 chapters published in peer-reviewed journals or books, and holds 7 patents. He was awarded the Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars (2009) from National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). Feng Chen is a Fellow of Institute of Physics (IOP), UK, a Senior Member of Optical Society of America (OSA), a Senior Member of SPIE, and a Director Board Member of Chinese Physical Society (CPS). He serves as the Deputy Editor of Chinese Optics Letters, an Editorial Board Member of Optical Engineering and Scientific Reports, and an active reviewer for more than 50 peer-reviewed journals. He has given invited talks in more than 60 international conferences/workshops, and co-organized some conferences related to Optics (CLEO, CLEO-Europe, CIOP, etc.) or Ion Beam (IBMM, REI, etc.) societies. 

Hiroshi Amekura is currently a Chief Researcher in the National Institute of Materials Science (NIMS), Japan. He received B.Sc. (1989), M.Sc. (1991) from the University of Tokyo, and Ph.D. degree (1999) from Tsukuba University, Japan. His current interests include ion implantation/irradiation, synthesis of nanoparticles by ion beams, and their optical properties. He has published more than 150 papers in peer-reviewed journals and several book chapters. In 1998, he received Young Scientist Award in 12th International Conference on Ion Implantation Technology. He has been involved in organization of major conferences in ion beam technology and materials society, such as IUMRS, MRS-J, Swift Heavy Ion in Matter (SHIM) etc.

Yuechen Jia is currently a Professor at School of Physics, Shandong University. He received degrees of B.Sc. (2010) and Ph.D. (2015) at Shandong University, China. His Ph.D. work focused on waveguide-based solid-state lasers and nonlinear optical frequency converters realized by ion beam technology and femtosecond laser micromachining. From 2016 to 2018, he worked on crystalline whispering gallery resonators and epitaxial ferroelectric thin films for applications in nonlinear optics at Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Germany, as an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow. In 2019, he researched on resonant all-dielectric nanostructures for strong light-matter interactions at Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS), Canada, as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. In 2020, he was appointed Professor of Optics at Shandong University supported by “Taishan Scholars Youth Expert Program” of Shandong Province and “Qilu Young Scholar Program” of Shandong University. He has more than 40 papers published in peer-reviewed journals.
