A new joint laboratory between Dr. Lifu Zhang of Center for Optoelectronic Science & Technology at Shenzhen University (China) and Prof. Claudio Conti at the Department of Physics of Sapienza is being settled. The laboratory will study theoretical and experimental nonlinear photonics with emphasis on supercontinuum generation, spatio-temporal, and high-field phenomena.
Several joint post-doctoral positions are available in this initiative and open to researchers with a Ph.D. in Optics and Photonics with outstanding track record.

In a paper published in Optics Express, M. Saleh, C. Conti, and F. Biancalana, report on a new scenario during rogue wave generation. The random intensity profile of an optical pulse fosters Anderson localization of waves that triggers the generation of solitons (the so-called solitonization) and ultimately rogue events. The process also involves event horizons in analogy with black holes. This is a further evidence of the complexity of supercontinuum generation and extreme events in nonlinear fibre optics.

How emotional talking with students with 30 hrs train ride to listen to the speaker and presenting their poster ! Science is great !
