Tutorial on Organic Nonlinear Optics

A view of Zurich

The ONO 2000 tutorial will be held in Zurich, a city at the northern end of the Lake of Zurich on the Swiss central plateau, just before the ICONO'5 Conference.

PDF Version

Optical wave manipulation is one of the future technologies for optical processing and communication. Organic nonlinear optical materials are thought to play a key role in these technologies, and a lot of effort to develop new molecules/materials as well as fundamental understanding is under way throughout the world. Prior to ICONO’5 in Davos (March 12-16, 2000), there will be a tutorial course at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH-Hönggerberg) organized by the Nonlinear Optics Laboratory of the Institute of Quantum Electronics. The course will take place from Thursday, March 9, 9:00 until Saturday, March 11, 12:00. Lectures will be presented on Thursday and Friday by top lecturers from all over the world. On Saturday, March 11, 9:00-12:00 there will be a visit of the Nonlinear Optics Laboratory with demonstrations.

Tutorial course scope

The lectures are aimed at giving an introduction into the field of organic nonlinear optics for PhD students, postdocs and researchers entering the field. The course will offer the attendees the opportunity to strengthen their background in the field of organic nonlinear optics and will allow the experts of today to share some of their knowledge, experience, and ideas with the experts of tomorrow.
