After the Symposium on Photoluminescence in rare earth doped materials (PRE’22-Mexico) in Cancun, the second event in 2022 will be organized in Poland together with the biennial International Conference on Molecular Spectroscopy, ICMS 2022. We would like to invite PRE’22 participants to come to Szczawnica to attend both the Symposium on Photoluminescence in Rare Earths: Photonic Materials and the ICMS Conference on 11-14 September 2022.

The Symposium would aim at providing a forum for material scientists, chemists, and physicists to debate about the state of the art and the perspectives of materials and devices exploiting the luminescence of rare earth ions. Both fundamental photoluminescent properties and application-oriented material investigations will be of interest.

We cordially invite you to participate in the ICMS 2022 Conference and register for the PRE'22-Poland Symposium.
