Dear colleagues,

You are cordially invited to participate in the 11th German-French Workshop on Oxide, Dielectric, and Laser single crystals 2022 (WODIL), organized by CRISTECH CNRS network under the aegis of the French Committee of Crystal Growth (CFCC) and DGKK (AK Optische Kristalle), taking part on September 15th–16th, 2022 at the Institute of Light and Matter (ILM) – University Claude Bernard Lyon 1 (UCBL1), Villeurbanne,France.

This workshop brings together scientists and scholars from industry, research labs, and universities to present and discuss the recent advances in the field of oxide crystals, dielectric materials, laser and non-linear optical crystals, solid-state lasers, and related topics.
