NLO - An international forum for discussion of all aspects of nonlinear optics, including new phenomena, novel devices, advanced materials and applications.

Nonlinear optical phenomena play a key role in several useful photonic applications. Such effects are now studied and applied over a wide range of energies and powers, from single-photons to zettawatts and above, and over broad spectral regimes, from THz to Gamma-ray frequencies. The purpose of this meeting is to provide an international forum for discussion of all aspects of nonlinear optics, including new phenomena, advanced materials, novel device concepts, as well as their applications in various fields of science and technology. Papers are being considered in the following topic categories :

1. Fundamental studies and new concepts -

- Quantum optics, computation and communication

- Single-photon nonlinear optics

- Coherent control of slow and fast light

- High intensity and relativistic nonlinear optics

- Ultrafast phenomena

- Solitons, nonlinear propagation, and pattern formation

- Nonlinear properties of surfaces, interfaces, and nanostructures

- Nonlinear properties of microcavities and microstructures

2. Nonlinear media -

- Atoms and molecules, including cold atoms and condensates

- Dielectric materials, semiconductors, and metal-based materials

- Nanostructures, plasmonic materials, and metamaterials

- Photonic bandgap structures

- Fibers and waveguides

- Photorefractives
