This session will focus on new developments and trends on emerging and highly forward-looking research in photonics. The meeting will showcase state-of-the-art results which bridge the gap between fundamental physics and applications.

The scope includes, but is not limited to:

  • Digital and optical signal processing
  • Nano- and microphotonics
  • Optoelectronics
  • Metamaterials
  • Novel devices
  • Silicon photonics
  • Waveguide and fibre optics
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Plasmonics
  • Nonlinear dynamics and quantum optics
  • Quantum cryptography and communication
  • Emerging ultrafast technologies
  • New concepts in optical generation including supercontinuum sources and VCSELs
  • Big data and optical real-time data analytics and compression
  • Frequency combs
  • Monolithic microresonators
  • Coherent transfer from the optical domain to microwave signals
  • Novel diagnostic and metrology techniques, and other optical communication and processing related topics

This year a particular focus session is devoted to the field of microresonator combs.
