Nonlinear Optics Topical Meeting

09 August 2021 – 13 August 2021
Optica Virtual Event - Eastern Daylight/Summer Time (UTC - 04:00)


The Technical Program

Nonlinear optics continues to play a critical role in many areas of photonics, from fundamental science to important practical applications. This conference is an international forum for the discussion of all aspects of nonlinear optics, including new phenomena, novel devices, advanced materials and innovative applications. 

The current scope of nonlinear optics covers all time scales—from CW to attoseconds, energies from single photons to zettawats and frequencies from THz to x-ray and beyond.

Hot topics this year include the nonlinear optics of fibers and microcavities, nonlinear effects at ultra-high intensities and machine learning and neural networks applied to practical applications of nonlinear optics.

  • Discover the latest developments in the nonlinear properties of fibers, microcavities and microstructures, especially as applied to comb laser technology and precision sensing.
  • Learn about recent advances in high intensity and relativistic nonlinear optics, including the latest in high-harmonic generation.
  • Learn about the continued advances in applying nonlinear optics in quantum communication, quantum computing and quantum sensing.
  • Investigate applications of nonlinear optics to materials science and biology, including biological probes, nonlinear microscopy and spectroscopy and materials processing.
