Photonic technologies have become increasingly important in our daily life since we entered the 21st century. From optical computing, telecommunications, ultra-high density data storage, image processing, display or recording, to ultrafast switching, photonic technologies are playing an indispensable role. The advance of these technologies depends on a fundamental understanding of nonlinear optical processes and the development of nonlinear optical materials, which provide key functions in harmonic generation, frequency mixing and optical switching.
This symposium will focus on recent developments and advances in nonlinear optical materials, characterization techniques, new methods in simulation or prediction of nonlinear optical effects, novel applications of nonlinear phenomena, etc. New devices utilizing nonlinear optical processes are also of interest to this symposium.
