Tutorials

In EOSAM2023, as in previous EOSAM conferences, in addition to the conference program including contributed and invited speakers, we wish to provide an additional benefit to all registered attendees at EOSAM in the form of tutorials covering Topical Meeting (TOM) topics. The tutorials will be held on Monday.

Participation in these tutorials is free for all registered participants of the conference but pre-registration required for each tutorial. Registration is binding.

Title: 50 years of solitons: fundamentals to applications 

The year 2023 represents fifty years since Hasegawa and Tappert predicted that temporally-localized solitons could be generated in optical fibers. This opened up an entirely new field of nonlinear fiber optics, and soliton concepts are now central to many different areas of photonics including the design of ultrafast lasers, frequency comb generation, as well as interdisciplinary studies related to rogue waves. This tutorial will provide an overview of the field.   

John's tutorial will concern at least the following TOMs:

  • TOM 6: Nonlinear and Quantum Optics 
  • TOM 7: Optical Frequency Combs 
  • TOM 8: Ultrafast optics
  • Focused Sessions

Title: The World of Optical Solitary Waves in Ultrafast Lasers

Philippe's tutorial explains the major evolution of optical soliton concepts in ultrafast lasers, largely driven by the fiber laser experimental platform and the dissipative soliton framework, which made scientists move beyond conventional laser stereotypes. It will concern at least the following TOMs: 

  • TOM 6: Nonlinear and Quantum Optics 
  • TOM 7: Optical Frequency Combs 
  • TOM 8: Ultrafast Optics
  • Focused Sessions

 

Rudiger paschotta

Rüdiger Paschotta

RP Photonics AG, Frauenfeld, Switzerland
 

Title: Simulation of ultrashort pulse propagation in fibers

It will be explained how the propagation of picosecond and femtosecond pulses in optical fibers can be simulated, taking into account chromatic dispersion, various kinds of nonlinearities and wavelength-dependent saturable gain. (A special challenge is the latter, if both time and frequency domain need to be considered.) Coherence properties of frequency combs can be investigated with some additional statistical processing.
Various techniques can also be applied for pulse propagation in other kinds of media, such as waveguides in various doped insulators or silicon.

Rüdiger´s tutorial will concern at least the following TOMs:

  • TOM6: Nonlinear and Quantum Optics
  • TOM7: Optical frequency combs
  • TOM8: Ultrafast Optics
