Routing Light with Nematicons: Light Localization and Steering in Liquid Crystals

By Gaetano Assanto

University of Rome "Roma Tre"

Published on


Gaetano Assanto received his MSc in Electrical Engineering in 1981 and his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1987. Since November 1992, he has been a professor of Optoelectronics with the Department of Electronic Engineering of the University of Rome "Roma Tre". His current interests are in nonlinear effects (parametric, Kerr-like, reorientational, thermo-optic) for all-optical signal processing and light localization, as well as Si-Ge heterostructures and optoelectronics for near-infrared photodetection. Dr. Assanto is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America (OSA) and senior member of the IEEE Lasers and Electro-Optics Society (IEEE-LEOS). He is a topical editor for the Journal of the Optical Society of America B and the chairman of the IEEE-LEOS Technical Committee in Nonlinear Optics.
