Discrete, Nonlinear and Disordered Optics

International Workshop
08 - 12 May 2017

The recent merging of nonlinear photonics and disordered system physics promises a considerable impact on various disciplines in science, from physics to biology and chemistry. This workshop aims at discussing the latest experimental and theoretical results in the fast developing field of discrete nonlinear and disordered optical systems.

Topics include

  • Photonic simulators of quantum physics
  • Disordered quantum physics
  • Synthetic photonic lattices
  • Nonlinear photonics
  • Disordered photonics
  • Meta-surfaces
  • Random lasers
  • Discrete optical systems
  • Topological Photonics
  • Fabrication Technology
