Nonlinear Photonics

Within this line of research, we explore complex phenomena in photonics,filling the gap between Modern Photonic Sources and Functional Complex Systems. Our Nonlinear Photonics Lab, working alongside a strong theoretical team, aims to gain an in-depth understanding of complex phenomena and to provide novel solutions from communication to information processing, transferring knowledge to the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) domain.

We study nonlinear and spatio-temporal emission properties of semiconductor lasers, implement optical complex networks based on lasers, advance characterization techniques, and demonstrate the utility of optical complexity for information technologies including encryption and ultra-fast neuro-inspired photonic information processing.
