Welcome !

This is the website of the Laboratory of Nonlinear Photonics and Theoretical Physics at the Department of Physics of the University Sapienza and the Institute for Complex Systems of the National Research Council. Our program is applying paradigms from the science of complex systems to light propagation, and investigating the development of complexity and self-organization in nonlinear waves. We want to test and deepen ideas of fundamental physics by using optics and photonics, and developing experiments, high performance computing approaches, and theory.

The thinnest beam ever! In Nature Photonics

In a paper published in Nature Photonics, E. Del Re, F. Di Mei, J. Parravicini, G. Parravicini, A. J. Agranat, and C. Conti report on the observation of a sub-wavelength spatial solitons propagating in a nano-disordered ferroelectric.

The beam has transverse size of the order of 200nm with wavelength 632nm, and turns out to be the thinnest beam ever observed with a variety of applications!
