Some FirstsThe NLO Group at CREOL is well known for its numerous contribution of techniques and theories for understanding optical nonlinearities in many different materials. Listed bellow are some of the achievements and developments in our group:
- Developed the “Z-scan” and several variants including the new White-Light Continuum Z-scan.
- Calculated and measured and general scaling rules to predict nonlinear optical properties of all inorganic solids.
- Determined Kramers-Kronig relations for two-photon absorption and ultrafast nonlinear refraction.
- Developed femtosecond white-light-continuum pump-probe nonlinear spectrometry for nondegererate nonlinearities.
- Invented the “Tandem Limiter” and various other related devices including the “Cascaded Limiter”.
- (Re)discovered and explained cascaded Χ(2) effects.
Join UsJoin the NLO Group
The NLO Group in CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics is always open to new members. Currently, we have open positions for Graduate Students and Research Scientists. Visitors are welcome to join our group for a minimum period of three months.
If you are interested in working with us, please see the list of activities below. If you believe you are qualified to carry out some these activities, feel free to inquire about our needs.Graduate students
We usually take on one or two graduate students each year, usually during the Spring and Summer. These graduate students should have backgrounds in Physics, Engineering, or Chemistry, and can be a CREOL or Physics Department student.
Requirements: You must be enrolled in the Graduate Program of the School of Optics and Photonics or the Physics Department. For more information about admissions at CREOL click hereVisiting Students
PhD students from other universities are affiliated with our group for periods ranging from three months to a year, for developing part of the graduate research, which is related to one of our research projects. We do not have funding for this program, so the applicant needs an external funding. The student will be provided with an CREOL affiliation with library access and a number of other privileges.
Requirements: Ph.D. student at a creditable university; preferably with external funding.Postdoctoral Research Fellows
Typically, we have two or three postdoctoral Research Fellows in our group. Currently we have only one open position for a Postdoc Researcher. However, there are always openings in our group for qualified people with external funding — we have a number of interesting new projects to work on and we always need qualified people.
Requirements: A Ph.D. degree (and external funding if no opening is posted).Visitors
Faculty or PostDoc Researchers from other universities can be affiliated with our group for periods from three months to a year. These visitors generally work on one of our research projects or on related research. We usually do not fund this program, so we encourage the visitors to have an external funding source. The visitor will be provided with an CREOL affiliation with library access and a number of other privileges.
Requirements: Ph.D. degree; three-months minimum stay.Procedure: Contact Dr. Eric Van Stryland or David Hagan
