Nonlinear Optics and Nanophotonics

The nona group

Welcome! We are the research group Nonlinear Optics and Nanophotonics (NONA) of Prof. Ulf Peschel at the Institute of Optics, Information and Photonics of the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg. We investigate the interaction of light with matter in sub-wavelength structures and aim to control wave propagation in the presence of optical nonlinearities.

We study the optical response of artificial materials and light propagation in curved space. We are interested in questions of fundamental physics just like in aspects of applied optics as e.g. the optimization of colored pigments.
