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 many applications of photonics. They are now studied and applied over a wide range of energies and powers, from single-photons to zettawatts and above, and over broad spectral ranges, from THz to Gamma-ray frequencies. New advances are arising in high-field areas and quantum nonlinear optics. New applications are emerging thanks to cross-fertilization with fields like machine learning and medicine. The purpose of this meeting is to provide an international forum for discussion of all these aspects of nonlinear optics, including new physics, advanced materials, novel device concepts, as well as their applications in various fields of science and technology.
