Avviso di seminario: Nonlinear optics of liquid crystals – Dottor Andrey ILJIN, Venerdì 10 maggio alle ore 14:30 in aula 155/1

Throughout their long history, liquid crystals (LC) gained outstanding popularity and appeared in modern optoelectronic and photonic technologies due to their large birefringence and strong responsiveness to external fields. Simple at a first glance, LC’s reveal spectacular behaviour with exciting and deep physics underneath. Almost all known nonlinear optical phenomena have been observed in LC media spanning over multiple time scales and a vast spectral range.
