Spontaneous patterns in nonlinear optics

Firth, W (Strathclyde)
Wednesday 10 August 2005, 09:00-10:00

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


Spontaneous patterns in optics usually involve diffraction, rather than diffusion, as the primary spatial coupling mechanism. The simplest and most successful system involves a nonlinear medium with a single feedback mirror. The basic theory and experimental status of that system will be reviewed, along with discussion of other systems such as semiconductor micro-resonators, and the closely related topic of dissipative solitons in such systems.
