Satellite Symposium

Solitons, Nonlinear and Quantum Photonics in Resonators and Waveguides


  • Alessia Pasquazi (Loughborough University, UK)
  • Dmitry Skryabin (University of Bath, UK)

We welcome a diverse range of participants with interests going across the boundaries of specific themes and reflecting on established and newly emerging research directions in nonlinear and quantum optics where multi-modded and spectrally broadband signals are the key players. 2023 was the 50-year anniversary of the numerical predictions of solitons in optical fibres, and one of the aims of the symposium is to reflect on the recent growth of fundamental and applied research in optical solitons and their applications to the generation of optical frequency combs.

Contributed talks - 15 min, Invited talks - 30 min, Tutorial talks - 45 min.

Symposium topics:

  • multimode photonics
  • optical solitons
  • optical frequency combs and metrology
  • photonic computing
  • chi(2) photonics
  • nonlinear and quantum effects in resonators
  • active microresonators and lasing
