WORKSHOP "Nonlinear Dynamics in Modelocked Lasers and Optical Fibers"
Berlin, July 13 - 14, 2006

Organized by: Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics
Humboldt University of Berlin, Institute of Physics

Supported by:   Terabit Optics Berlin (Technology Foundation Berlin)
Organizers:    U. Bandelow, WIAS
M. Radziunas, WIAS
A. Vladimirov, WIAS
H.-J. Wünsche, Humboldt Universität

The workshop will focus on mathematical, physical, and technological aspects of nonlinear phenomena in semiconductor lasers and optical fibers
The main topics will include:
  • mode-locking in quantum-well and quantum-dot lasers
  • modeling of semiconductor lasers and saturable absorbers
  • pulse propagation in the nonlinear optical fibers
