The Laser Physics and Nonlinear Optics group (LPNO) explores the physics and technology of nonlinear optical processes with emphasis on nano-photonics. This includes a wide range of light intensities and time scales, research on novel or improved light sources, and it includes the selection and control of suitable nonlinear media and advanced optical components. The research currently covers three main themes: Integrated photonics, Photonics with free electrons, and Spectroscopic applications. The group participates in strategic alliances with various partners, including the Applied Nanophotonics Research Orientation of Mesa+ Institute for Nanotechnology.
