The focus of this topical meeting is to explore new developments, trends and applications in the field of nonlinear optics, materials and structures.


  • Nonlinear optical phenomena and new devices
  • Nonlinear frequency conversion for the UV, visible and IR, telecommunications applications and all-optical switching
  • All-optical delay lines and slow light
  • Optical parametric devices such as optical parametric amplifiers and oscillators
  • SPDC novel sources for Q.I. applications 
  • Nanostructured metals and materials, metamaterials and 2D materials 
  • Raman based devices including amplifiers and lasers 
  • Nonlinear probing of surfaces; multi-photon imaging and coherent Raman microscopy
  • Nonlinear quantum optics
