Nonlinear Photonics (NP)

27 - 31 julio 2014
Barcelona, Spain

The 2014 OSA Nonlinear Photonics (NP) meeting took place 27 - 31 July. To ensure you hear about future NP meetings, email

The Nonlinear Photonics meeting is a venue for researchers interested in all aspects of nonlinear optical processes in structures, devices and systems. The meeting scope covers both fundamental and applied nonlinear photonics with topics including temporal, spatial and spatio-temporal nonlinear effects, theoretical and computational methods, experimental techniques, nonlinear materials, nonlinear systems, novel optical fibers and waveguides, intermodal nonlinearities, ultrafast processes, photonic chaos, source development, solitons and rogue waves, frequency combs, supercontinuum generation, nonlinearity in nanophotonics, metamaterials and plasmonics, nonlinearity in systems, high-field physics, quantum optics and filamentation.

Joint Poster Sessions
Monday, 28 July and Tuesday, 29 July
Posters are an integral part of the technical program and offer a unique networking opportunity, where presenters can discuss their results one-to-one with interested parties. Each author is provided with a board on which to display the summary and results of his or her paper.

Symposium on Surface Functionalization of Optical Fiber and Waveguide Based Bio- and Chemical-Sensors (Joint BGPP and Sensors)

Tuesday, 29 July
The aim of this Symposium is to bring together chemists, biochemists, and photonic device designers to explore together how best to functionalize optical fiber devices to detect biochemical substances and chemicals with high sensitivity, selectivity, and robustness, while lowering the limit of detection to levels that will allow real applications to be developed.  For more information visit the Symposium page.
