The meeting aims at making the point of our research activities to pave the way to the future researches at the Nanoscience Laboratory. This year we welcome a long seminar on topic related to photonics with lithium niobate. In addition, four research teams, formed by the scientists of the lab, will address the audience with the state of the art of their research in nanoscience, biology and photonics.

14.10 – 15.00 Reconfigurable photonic devices in lithium niobate, Mirko Lobino

15.00 – 15.40 Quantum physics experiments with light on a chip, Stefano Azzini, Alessio Baldazzi, Nicolò Leone, Chiara Michelini, Matteo Sanna, Leonardo Cattarin

15.40 – 16.20 Non-Hermitian Microresonator-based structures for Topological Physics and Sensing, Stefano Biasi, Riccardo Franchi, Bülent Aslan, Salamat Ali

Coffee Break 

17.00 – 17.40 Integrated Photonic Circuits for efficient Neuromorphic Computing, Alessio Lugnan, Stefano Biasi, Emiliano Staffoli, Gianpietro Maddinelli
