Workshop on Nonlinear Optical Frequency Combs: Dynamics and Applications

October 14-15 2019, Anacapri (Italy)

Nonlinear resonators are an attractive platform for generation of optical frequency combs, light sources whose spectrum is a discrete array of equally spaced narrow laser lines. In the last decade both second and third order nonlinearities have been exploited to generate frequency combs, providing an intriguing alternative to traditional mode-locked lasers.
The workshop aims at presenting and discussing ideas on the last developments in the physics of frequency combs in nonlinear resonators, through a series of lectures from world’s leading experts in the field. The workshop is the first training event for PhD students of MOCCA, a European Industrial Doctorate project.
The workshop is hosted in the CNR Conference Facility (Via Ceselle 9), in Anacapri, a small town of the Capri island, in the gulf of Naples.
