The 14th conference on photorefractive effects, materials and devices will be held in the UK for the first time, and will offer the opportunity for presentations on photorefractive nonlinearities, new applications and directions including structured, hybrid and photosensitive materials.

The themes of the conference are as follows:

  • Hybrid, organic and nanomaterial based photorefractive materials
  • Interferometry, slow light, digital and dynamic holography
  • Lithium niobate photorefractive crystals and waveguides: material physics and applications
  • Materials for THz and IR
  • Nonlinear light-matter interaction: pulses, solitons, patterns, dynamics
  • Optical signal processing, limiting and modulators
  • Periodic and aperiodic ferroelectric structures and their applications
  • Photosensitivity and direct laser writing (fibres and planar structures)
  • Wave mixing, SBS, EM induced transparency, gain media
