Yuri Kivshar: Recent advances in nonlinear photonics and plasmonics

Australian National University and St.-Petersburg University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics

We discuss the recent advances in the study of nonlinear effects in photonic structures, metamaterials and plasmonic waveguides. In particular, we analyze a novel type of self-focusing of broad optical beams in waveguide arrays, nanofocusing of light in tapered plasmonic waveguides and generation of plasmon-soliton, and a novel type of magnetoelastic nonlinear response in metamaterials.
