Son et lumière: from microphotonics to nanophononics

will take place in Les Houches, France, from February 16th to 27th, 2015.

The Son et Lumiere school provides in-depth tutorial lectures at the postgraduate/postdoctoral level and covers

  • ultrafast phononics (picosecond acoustics, coherent acoustic and optical phonons)
  • phononic crystal (superlattices, supra-crystals, bands structures calculations)
  • photonic crystal (opals, photonic crystal fibers)
  • phonon photogeneration processes (electron-phonon coupling mechanisms)
  • ultrafast techniques for generation and detection phonons in condensed matter (UV-VIS- IR femtoseconde laser, THz sources and ultrashort X-ray pulse, ...)
  • light scattering in nanostructures
  • non-linear acoustics (solitons)
