Irregular and disorder existed widely and unavoidable in natural and manmade structures, such as powers, fibers, waveguide, artificial structures, and biology samples. Generally, they are harmful in optics, because they cause strong scattering of light, which rise challenges to control light transmission, distribution and generation in these complex mediums. On the other hand, they also provide large degree of freedom for light controls that are useful in applications of photonic information, manipulation and imaging. Beside, light in these complex medium shows fantastic characteristics such as ergodicity, non-duplication and large tolerance of operation, which motivate novel studies in random lasing, chaos as well as momentum or quantum mediation. Especially, current progress in materials, processing and artificial intelligence provide new opportunities for intelligent control and smart applications of light in complex medium.
This session aims to facilitate discussion and integration of curiosity/application oriented innovations and fundamental findings from multidisciplinary approaches in related areas of physics & engineering, which will promote a better understanding and applications of light control in complex medium.
