6th Workshop on Laser Dynamics and Nonlinear Photonics
Topics of interest include:
Lasers: General laser theory; Semiconductor lasers; Microcavity and microdisk lasers; Photonic crystal lasers; Laser design and operation; Dynamical laser instabilities; Noisy laser behavior; Spatial pattern formation; Laser applications; Laser spectroscopy.
Nonlinear optics: Phase conjugation; Beam trapping, self-focusing and defocusing; Self-phase modulation; Optical frequency converters; Optical bistability, multistability, and switching; Dynamics of nonlinear optical systems; Optical instabilities, optical chaos and complexity; Optical spatio–temporal dynamics; solitons; nonlinear guided waves and waveguides.
Optical materials and nanophotonics: Nonlinear optical crystals; Photorefractive and semiconductor materials; Photonic bandgap materials; metamaterials and plasmonics; Nonlinear behavior in nanophotonics.
The Workshop will have invited talks, contributed talks and poster sessions. The participation of Latin-America scientists is highly encouraged.
The workshop will bring together leading researchers that will present the latest developments in nonlinear photonics, laser dynamics and applications. The workshop will provide the valuable opportunity to interchange ideas in a relaxed environment, to create synergies and to establish new international collaborations.
The Workshop will be held in Montevideo, which is the capital of Uruguay and a city with rich natural, cultural and gastronomic life. Montevideo is one of the safest cities in Latin America and one of the highest quality of life. The venue of the workshop is the Cala di Volpe Boutique hotel that stands on an excellent location with magnificent views to the “Rio de la Plata”. Montevideo has good flight connections to Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo and there are a few direct flights to the US. Temperatures during December range from 25 to 30 degrees Celsius, with mostly sunny days.
