Nonlinear Optics and Supercontinuum Symposium
A one day “Nonlinear Optics and Supercontinuum Symposium” will be held on Friday 20 September in the Amphi FEMTO in honour of Professor Chinlon Lin who will be here in Besançon during this time.
The year 2013 represents 40 years since his discovery with Roger Stolen of self-phase modulation in silica fibers and we have assembled a fantastic programme of speakers who will update the technical state-of-the art in this area with topics including supercontinuum sources, nonlinear optics in gas-filled fibres, rogue waves and instabilities, soliton dynamics in microresonators, topographic control of fiber nonlinear propagation, and more. Please see the attached poster.
Our keynote speaker is Professor Philip Russell from Erlangen, inventor of the Photonic Crystal Fiber and incoming President of the OSA.
