Parametric Nonlinear Optics
http://podcast.grenet.fr
This podcast shows 44 lectures in English for PhD, MSc students and postdocs. 23 lecturers who are specialists from all over the world gave these lectures with animated powerpoint supports and videos. Our podcast deals with various aspects of parametric nonlinear optics: classical and quantum pictures, geometries, materials, devices and applications. The 45 lectures were recorded during the first International School on Parametric Non Linear Optics (ISPNLO). It was organized By Pr Benoit Boulanger, Pr Robert W. Boyd and Pr Patricia Segonds. ISPNLO took place at Les Houches in France from 25th April to 1rst May 2016. The housing being limited, only 59 students had the chance to attend this school and live with the lecturers during 15 days. This school was labelled as an event of the International Year of Light 2015 (IYL 2015), and it was a thematic school of Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS).It was sponsored by IYL 2015, CNRS, Société Française d’Optique (SFO), Société Européene d’Optique (EOS), Université Joseph Fourier de Grenoble France (UJF), Institut Polytechnique de Grenoble (INPG), Nanosciences Fondation, LANEF, Laboratoire d’Alliances Neurosciences, Energies du Futur de Grenoble (LANEF), and Ecole de Physique des Houches.
We aim at widely spreading out the 45 lectures given by 23 lecturers who are specialists from all over the world. Our podcast is dedicated to PhD, MSc students and postdocs, who did not have the chance to attend our first international school dealing with various aspects of parametric nonlinear optics: classical and quantum pictures, geometries, materials, devices and applications. It details fundamentals and current challenges in related research at the highest international level.fr-FR2016 Université de Grenoble - Creative Commons By-NC-SA 2.0Mon, 12 Mar 2018 14:24:59 +0000Mon, 12 Mar 2018 14:24:59 +0000eZ Components Feed 1.3 (http://ezcomponents.org/docs/tutorials/Feed)http://www.rssboard.org/rss-specificationBenoit Boulanger and Patricia Segondsnononlinear optics, non linear materials, frequency conversion, parametric devices, quantum opticspatricia.Segonds@neel.cnrs.frBenoit Boulanger and Patricia SegondsClassical, Quantum, Materials, Geometries, Devices and ApplicationsThis podcast is made of 44 lectures dealing with various aspects of parametric nonlinear optics: classical and quantum pictures, geometries, materials, devices and applications.44- nonlinear microscopyThis lecture focuses on nonlinear optical microscopy (also called multiphoton microscopy) and its application in biological tissues.

43- Methodology of characterization of nonlinear crystals IIThis lecture aims at reminding firstly the main parameters on which relies the selection of a new nonlinear crystal, and secondly the main techniques implemented for their determination. Such a work relies on studies of the linear optical properties or the non linear optical properties in the crystal, covering its transparency range.
Birefringent non linear crystals (BPM) and nonlinear crystals with periodical ferroelectric domains (QPM) will be considered.
The 9 topics of the outline of this lecture include:
1. Remember fundamentals
2. Designs and material issues in NLO devices
3. Crystal optics
4. How to determine phase-matching directions ?
5. Direct measurement of Walk-off
6. From gain to non linear coefficients values and sign
7. Crystals orientation and shaping
8. Dielectric frame versus crystallographic crystals
9. From characterization to new devices
After a discussion of modus operandi, each topic is illustrated with recently performed characterizations of new potential nonlinear crystals leading to the generation of light covering the Ultra-Violet up to the far-InfraRed ranges. We will also discuss how the determined parameters can be used to implement Optical Parametric devices.

41- Multimode quantum optics IIIQuantum Optics, as the child of Optics and Quantum Mechanics, has inherited a double linearity: that of Maxwell equations, which use optical modes as a basis of solutions, and that of the Schrödinger equation, which uses quantum state bases. Considering these two bases on an equal footing and tailoring quantum fields not only in given modes, but also optimizing the spatiotemporalshapes of the modes in which the state is defined, has not been so far fully exploited. This specific feature of Quantum Optics opens wide perspectives for treating complex quantum states. These lectures give an introduction to this subject, at the frontier between classical optics and quantum optics. One shows how to experimentally determine the full multimode covariance matrix characterizing the complex system at the quantum level. and stresses the importance of the possibility of changing modal bases, and to extract physical modes from experimental data. Applications to information processing and high sensitivity optical measurements are also considered.a79212f8430109dacf9d3cdb911f7e0eMon, 06 Feb 2017 12:02:32 +0100Benoit Boulanger and Patricia Segonds01:58:24Quantum optics, optical modes, quantum correlations and entanglement, optical coherenceClaude Fabre is professor at Université Pierre et Marie Curie Sorbonne at Paris, FranceQuantum Optics, as the child of Optics and Quantum Mechanics, has inherited a double linearity: that of Maxwell equations, which use optical modes as a basis of solutions, and that of the Schrödinger equation, which uses quantum state bases.
