Optoelectronics and Photonics Winter School NLP2019

University of Trento & Sapienza University of Rome

Currently running

he University of Trento, the Nanoscience Laboratory, and The University of Rome La Sapienza organize the 10th edition of the classical Optoelectronics and Photonics Winter school. The school aims to bring together a large number of PhD students and young researchers from all parts of the world who during a one-week intense schedule, follow a series of lectures on selected topics. The lectures are held by internationally recognized experts in the field. At the same time, the students are encouraged to enjoy the beautiful location where the school is organized. To this end a large lunch break is considered to allow skiing and relaxing on the mountains or at the hotel facilities. This year the school introduces students and post-docs to the concepts of nonlinear photonics, focusing on the hot topics that are driving the technological and scientific research. The target audience is PhD students and young researchers, who will have the opportunity to attend the lectures given by scientists leading of the nonlinear optics community. The school will initially introduce the general concepts of nonlinear optics, with particular attention to the fiber and integrated optics platforms (both III-V and silicon). Then the lectures will focus on the main applications and fundamental research involving nonlinear optical processes (optical soliton and supercontinuum physics, frequency combs, parametric sources of quantum light for quantum photonics, wavelength conversion, distributed optical sensors, optical imaging, attosecond physics). Informal events will be organized in order to help the networking between researchers and students. We will enjoy the beautiful surrounding during the free times with few organized events. In addition to standard classes, rump evening sessions on hot topics in the field with free beers and beverages will be organized to facilitate discussions among students and lecturers. Since this is a residential school, both the students and the lecturers will reside in the same hotel which will easy discussions in an informal venue or on the ski fields.
