Choreographing the emergence of 'light bullets' for next-generation devices
Harnessing the movement of electrons and photons has enabled tremendous progress in areas from biomedicine and renewable energy to quantum engineering and communications. Since the first report of their experimental generation a little more than a decade ago, solitons have been ushering in a new era of innovation. These packets of electromagnetic energy are also called light bullets in recognition of their particle-like stable propagation in space and time – highly sought-after characteristics for numerous applications. The EU-funded NOSTER project will apply sophisticated analytical and numerical methods to understand what governs the formation and propagation of solitons. Getting a handle on their complex dynamics will pave the way to choreographing them for next-generation devices.
