mini-workshop on topological light-matter states
The topological structure of electromagnetic and matter waves has broad scientitic implications ranging from photonics and light sources to particle accelerators and high energy physics. This provides a common background that allows to explore new connections between fundamental advances in non-linear optics and photonics with plasma physics and high energy physics. With the goal of exploring these relationships, IPFN through GoLP, CFTP and IT promote a mini-workshop on these topics with the following program:
To-be-held on Oct 28, Anfiteatro Abreu Faro (Complexo)
09.05 Topological non-Hermitian origin of surface electromagnetic and acoustic waves, Konstantin Bliokh (google scholar), RIKEN, Japan
09.50 Plasma accelerators and light sources: from compact to topological, Jorge Vieira, IPFN
10.20 Coffee break
10.40 Curiosities in resonance production in twisted particle collisions, Igor Ivanov (google scholar), CFTP
11.20 Non-reciprocity with "motion", Mario Silveirinha, IT/DEEC
Please register here (registration is free).
The presentations will be geared towards a general physics audience so all physics students are most welcomed to attend.
Organizing committee: Jorge Vieira, Igor Ivanov, Mario Silveirinha, Ana Luisa Matias
