The Fock-State Laser: Macroscopic Quantum States of Light Based on Deep Strong Light-Matter Coupling (FM1J.1)
Presenter: Nicholas Rivera, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

We show that coupled light-matter systems reaching the deep strong coupling regime can be coupled to gain media to form novel types of lasers emitting macroscopic quantum states of light, e.g. many-photon Fock states.

Experimental Demonstration of Dynamic Band Structure Measurement Along a Synthetic Dimension (FM1J.2)
Presenter: Guangzhen Li, Shanghai Jiao Tong Univeristy

We propose the experimentally dynamic band structure measurement, which exhibits the evolution of the wavevector along the synthetic dimension and simulates the momentum movement in the one-dimensional solid-state system under a constant force.

Laser Tractor-Beam of 2D Flow in Soap Films (FM1J.3)
Presenter: Anatoly Patsyk, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology

We present the first observation of laser tractor-beam of 2D flow in soap films.

Observation of the Fundamental Length Scale of Branched Flow of Light (FM1J.4)
Presenter: Shruti Saiji, University of Central Florida, CREOL

Branched flow is a universal phenomenon in which waves form channels of enhance intensity that keep dividing as they propagate. We experimentally demonstrate the scaling behavior of the fundamental branching length for general anisotropic media.

Combinatorial Optimization With the Optical Potts Machine (FM1J.5)
Presenter: Mostafa Honari-Latifpour, City University of New York

We show that networks of phase-tristable optical parametric oscillators simulate the three-state Potts model. A direct simulation of the underlying nonlinear dynamical model provides an efficient path toward combinatorial optimization.

Light Stopping by Reflection From a Moving Index Front (FM1J.6)
Presenter: Mahmoud Gaafar, Hamburg University of technology

Nonlinearly generated refractive index fronts in waveguides can change the signal frequency and wavenumber leading to the indirect transitions. Here, we discuss how dynamic light stopping and pulse time reversal can be implemented in dispersive waveguides via these transitions.

Skyrmionic Supertoroidal Light Pulses (FM1J.7)
Presenter: Yijie Shen, University of Southampton

We report that the "Focused Doughnut" introduced by Hellwarth and Nouchi in 1996 is only a single member of an extended family of electromagnetic toroidal pulses with skyrmion topology propagating at the speed of light.
