How light interacts with advanced materials is vital to optical technologies from solar cells to light-emitting devices. Advanced optical materials enable a tailor-made control over this interaction, whether light is being absorbed or emitted.

In this webinar you will be shown:

  • how the absorption and emission properties of nanomaterials can be precisely controlled by coupling the photonic modes of optical resonators or solid dispersions of light scattering centres
  • how different designs of integrated photonic architectures allow precise control of colour and directionality of solid-state lighting converters and enhance the light-harvesting efficiency and aesthetic properties of dye-sensitized and perovskite solar cells.
  • a new approach to rapid, automated quality control of diffraction gratings that can reduce the time the time taken for quality assurance, or design verification, from days to just a few hours.


  • Dr Gabriel Lozano of the Spanish National Research Council received his PhD from the University of Seville in 2010. Since then, he has held positions at AMOLF in The Netherlands and the Institute of Materials Science of Seville in Spain.
  • Travis Burt is Global Product Manager at Agilent Technologies for the Cary range of UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometers. He has over 20 years’ experience in molecular spectroscopy and received a Master of Applied Science from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia.
