Light that Twists inside fibers
A recently developed fiber that has a ring-shaped core has enabled their stable generation and propagation in optical fibers for distances of up to kilometres. Since fibers are well known for their ability to offer nonlinear and dispersive tailoring of light, this additionally opens the door to studying and exploiting nonlinear phenomena with such beams. This talk will discuss recent results and intriguing possibilities enabled by fiber propagation of beams that have long been considered interesting, but hitherto unstable in nature.
Siddharth Ramachandran, Boston University
Prof. Ramachandran’s research focuses on the optical physics of guided waves. He has authored over 200 refereed journal and conference publications, more than 50 invited talks, plenary lectures and tutorials, 3 book-chapters, edited one book, and has been granted 38 patents. For his contributions in the field of fiber-optics, he was named a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff at OFS Labs in 2003, a fellow of the Optical Society (OSA) in 2010, and an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer for 2013-2015. He serves as a topical editor for Optica in addition to serving on numerous conference and advisory committees in the field of optics and applied physics, including as general chair for CLEO-2017.

General Information on NES/OSA Meetings
Cancellations and No-shows:
If the meeting must be cancelled for any reason, we will try to call you at the phone number you leave with your reservation. Official notice of cancellation will be on our answering machine.
We have to pay for the dinners reserved as of the Tuesday before the meeting, so no-shows eat into our cash reserve. If you will not be able to attend, please let us know as early as possible. Otherwise, no-shows will be billed.
NOTE: The extra $5.00 of the non-member dinner fee can be used toward membership dues if the nonmember joins and pays dues for the current year at the meeting.
