Pattern Dynamics in Nonlinear Optical Cavities – PDNOC-2 Workshop


PDNOC16

 6-16 June 2017

 

The workshop Pattern Dynamics in Nonlinear Optical Cavities – PDNOC-2 is the second part of a tandem workshop between the Max Planck Institute in Dresden, and the New Zealand Institute for Advanced Study (NZIAS) together with the Dodd-Walls Centre for Photonics and Quantum Technologies (DWC) in Auckland. The first workshop was held at the MPI PKS in Dresden in August 2016; details can be found here.

 

Scope

This second smaller workshop focuses on the phenomenon of pattern formation that can happen in optically active media, e.g., in different semiconductor cavities, in fiber laser setups or in materials with nonlinear optical properties. It will feature introductory and invited presentations in the mornings, targeted at beginning PhD level. The afternoons will be reserved for self-study, informal discussions and collaborations. Three main themes will be addressed: 

  1. Optical computing beyond the von Neumann paradigm
  2. Dynamics of complex micro laser systems for processing and storing optical data
  3. Ultra short pulse generation via nonlinear processes in active media

 

Location

University of Auckland and New Zealand Institute for Advanced Study (NZIAS); exact location to be advised at a later date.

 

Invited Speakers

  • Ingo Fischer (photonic information processing)
  • Laurent Larger (optical networks)
  • Stephane Barland (dissipative optical solitons)
  • Julien Javaloyes (light bullets)
  • Sylvain Barbay (spiking in micropillar laser)
  • Alejandro Giacomotti (coupled nanolasers)
  • Stefan Breuer (controlling mode-locking with delayed feedback)


Introductory Lectures

  • Neil Broderick (principles of model-locked fibre lasers)
  • Stephane Coen (temporal optical cavity solitons in fibre ring resonators: fundamentals and interactions)
  • Miro Erkintalo (nonlinear pulse dynamics in optical microresonators)
  • Bernd Krauskopf (bifurcation analysis of laser systems with delays)
  • Kathy Luedge (dynamics of semiconductor laser systems)

 

A limited number of other contributions will be accepted. If you are interested, please provide, by Friday 31 March 2017 a title, a short abstract of about 100 words, stating whether you are applying for a talk or poster; this information should be sent by email to Premika Sirisena.
