||The Nonlinear Optics and Photonics laboratory was formed in 2018 by the merging of 2 groups from the Laser Department-NILPRP; Nonlinear and Information Optics Group (NIO) and Solid State Laser Laboratory (SSLL).
Expertise of the new group:
- Photonic functionalities in nonlinear optical materials (light guiding by light - spatial soliton waveguides, all-optical light modulation, etc.);
- Characterization methods: laser interferometry, laser spectroscopy, imaging techniques, morphological investigations, structural analyses, gas sensing platform, characterization and modeling of nonlinear optical processes (Z-scan/I-scan, wave-mixing, third-harmonic generation, pump-probe interferometry);
- Materials processing with fs and ns laser sources: thin films, micro- and nano-structures, nanoparticles, additive manufacturing, and quantum dots;
- Numerical simulations/codes using various softwares (RSoft, PIC, Optica).
