Until recently most industrial research efforts in applications related to nonlinear optics have been directed at suppressing nonlinear effects in optical materials. Due to the ever-increasing demand for higher bit rate in communications, the nonlinear effects are now being exploited to create higher capacity systems. The idea is that underlying a soliton, namely to balance nonlinear and dispersive effects to create stable structures. A particular challenge lies in dealing with cases where the partial differential equations are not integrable.
The goal of this minisymposium is to bring together experts in optical communications and researchers from different fields where nonlinear pulse dynamics is important.Organizers: Christopher K. R. T. Jones and Vadim Zharnitsky
