Dynamics of novel mode-locked and frequency-swept lasers
December 18 - 19, 2017 — Berlin


The Minisymposium will focus on theoretical and experimental investigation of the nonlinear dynamics in frequency swept and broad mode-locked lasers.
The main topics will include but not limited to:
  • Experimental and theoretical investigation of dynamics of frequency swept lasers used in coherence optical tomography
  • Transition to optical turbulence in long cavity laser systems
  • Modeling of Fourier domain mode-locked lasers
  • Application of delay differential equations in modeling laser dynamics
  • Reduction of laser models using dynamical systems theory, bifurcation theory and singular perturbation theory
  • Numerical methods for simulation of frequency swept and mode-locked lasers
  • Temporal cavity solitons and light bullets in broad area lasers
