Effect of Kerr Nonlinearity on Propagation of Light

It is apprised that the open defense of Ph.D. Scholar Mr. Muqaddar Abbas is scheduled on December 29, 2017 at 10:00 am in Radiation Physics Lab, Physics Lab.The details are as follows:

We investigate the effect of optical Kerr non-linearity on light propagation through different dispersive media. Our main focus is to study the behavior of Goos–Hänchen shift in the reflected and transmitted light under the influence of Kerr non-linearity during its propagation through dispersive media. Goos–Hänchen shift is a very tiny lateral displacement, i.e., of the order of optical wavelength. It has potential applications in, for example, measuring surface smoothness, guidance system design of the optical devices in sensors, and information processing. It is, therefore, instructive to suggest and design experimentally viable models which can enhance the amplitude of Goos–Hänchen shift and the goal can be obtained in the presence of Kerr non-linearity. In this regard, we consider models based on artificial atoms, i.e., Quantum Dots.


You are all invited to attend the presentation.
