Frontiers of Guided Wave Nonlinear Optics

Tuesday, 17 May 11:30 – 12:00
Optica Booth 113

This course will review recent research and applications in the field of nonlinear guided wave optics with emphasis on both fundamentals and emerging applications. Starting from a strong foundation in the principles of nonlinear optics, we will review recent progress in emerging nonlinear optical platforms with an emphasis on the different materials, including silicon, chalcogenide, III-V semiconductors, lithium niobate, photonic crystal fibers, nanophotonic circuits and others. We will establish key figures of merit for these different material systems and a general framework for nonlinear guided wave optics with emphasis on the applications in emerging areas of science and technology. We will then review recent progress and breakthroughs in the following areas: all-optical processing, ultra-fast optical communications, slow light, highly nonlinear and emerging waveguides, ultrafast measurement and pulse characterization, frequency combs and optical clock, optical parametric amplifiers and oscillators, generation and applications of optical supercontinuum, nonlinear localization effects and solitons, nonlinear optics for quantum information.
