Frontiers in nonlinear nanophotonic circuits
Prof. Benjamin Eggleton, The University of Sydney Nano Institute, Sydney, Australia
Leuchs-Russell Auditorium, A.1.500, Staudtstr. 2
My talk will review recent progress in nonlinear integrated circuits for signal processing, highlighting fundamental studies of topological protection of quantum states, soliton dynamics in on-chip Bragg grating and Brilllouin-based microwave photonic devices.
