The 9th German-French Workshop on Oxide, Dielectric and Laser single crystals (WODIL 2020) is a continuation of the annual DGKK meetings on “Crystals for lasers and non-linear optics” and previous workshops organized at FEE/EOT in Idar-Oberstein (2011, 2014, 2018), ISL in Saint Louis (2012, 2015), ICMCB in Pessac/Bordeaux (2017), ILM in Villeurbanne/Lyon (2019), and IKZ in Berlin (2016).

The workshop is devoted to any research involving oxide, chalcogenide, or halide single crystals that are used as optical, piezoelectric, or laser materials, and as substrates for piezoelectric and oxide electronic applications. The 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.

The workshop is a joint collaboration of the German Society of Crystal Growth (DGKK), the CNRS network CRISTECH (Crystal Growth Technologies) and the French Committee for Crystal Growth (CFCC) under the aegis of the French Association of Crystallography (AFC). It is organized by the Leibniz-Institut für Kristallzüchtung (IKZ).

We are looking forward to welcome you in Berlin!
