We have just published our last results dealing with the sampling and amplification process of an arbitrary shaped signal through XPM in Optics Express.

Sydney Opera
5 talks for PETAL during its southern hemisphere tour
9 September 2016

The PETAL team has given 5 talks during its southern hemisphere tour: 1 invited in Auckland and 4 during the Nonlinear Photonics conference in Sydney, including 2 postdeadline papers. Great job.

shock wave
PETAL gets 2 postdeadlines in Nonlinear Photonics
26 August 2016

Great news for the PETAL team, 2 posdeadline papers accepted in Nonlinear Photonics which will be held in Sydney in 2 weeks.
For the first time, Ballistic shock waves and Polarization domain walls will be presented.
