Prof. Dr. Richard Moncorgé received the Doctorat degree in Atomic and Molecular Physics from the University of Lyon in 1976 and the Doctorat es Sciences Physiques degree in 1982 (field of study : optic and magnetic collective excitations in solids). He was with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) as a researcher of the Laboratoire de Physico-Chimie des Matériaux Luminescents (LPCML), University of Lyon, from 1976 to 1997. Between 1976 and 1977, he was granted a fellowship from the French Academy of Sciences to work on optical energy transfers in solids as a Post-Doctoral Scientist with the Department of Physics, Boston College, and with the University of California, Los Angeles. Between 1982 and 1983, he was in charge of a research program on new solid-state laser materials at the Centre National des Télécommunications (CNET), Paris, France. Since then, he has been conducting researches in this field, especially on the fluorescence dynamics, excited state spectroscopy, crystal growth and laser operation of crystals doped with transition-metal and rare-earth ions. He was Directeur de Recherche (CNRS) between 1993 and 1997 and he is now Professor de Classe Exceptionnelle at the University of Caen, conducting researches in the group “Matériaux et Instrumentation Laser” of the CIMAP (former CIRIL) laboratory. He was General, Program, Steering-Committee or Committee Chair of many national and international conferences, among which, in the recent 10 years, Photonics Europ (2004), Europhoton (2006-2012), UVX (2006-2010), CLEO’Europ (2007), MICS’2009, AIOM (2011, 2012), PRLD (2011, 2013, 2015) and ASSL (2013-2015). He was a Topical Editor of the J. Opt. Soc. Am. B for the “Luminescent Compounds and Processes and the Laser Materials” from 2007 to 2013, and the principal coordinator of the CNRS national network CMDO+ for “Cristaux Massifs, Micro-nano-structures et Dispositifs pour l’Optique” (, from 2006 to 2014. He was recently nominated as Fellow of the EOS(2013) and of the OSA (2015). He is now an Editorial Advisor of the French Scientific & Technical review “Techniques pour l’Ingénieur” ( He is an author or a co-author of more than 300 articles in scientific journals with referees’ reports and as invited papers or contributions to special issues and books.
