Nonlinear Optics (NLO)

Nonlinear Optics (NLO)

26 - 31 July 2015
Kaua'i Marriott Resort on Kalapaki Beach , Kauai, Hawaii, USA

NLO - An international forum for discussion of all aspects of nonlinear optics, including new phenomena, novel devices, advanced materials and applications.

Nonlinear optical phenomena play a key role in several useful photonic applications. Such effects are now studied and applied over a wide range of energies and powers, from single-photons to zettawatts and above, and over broad spectral regimes, from THz to Gamma-ray frequencies. The purpose of this meeting is to provide an international forum for discussion of all aspects of nonlinear optics, including new phenomena, advanced materials, novel device concepts, as well as their applications in various fields of science and technology.
