Meet the Author

ROBERT EASON, PhD, is Professor of Optoelectronics at the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) at the University of Southampton, UK, and a member of the ORC Management Board. Professor Eason has more than 140 journal and 160 conference publications to his credit. His achievements in PLD include the world's first lasing PLD waveguide (Nd:GGG on YAG), quasi-three level c.w. operation of Nd:GGG, the growth of single crystal thin-film sapphire that matches the best bulk sapphire grown to date, and the first successful growth and laser operation of Ti:sapphire on sapphire waveguides.
