Self-confined beams and spatial solitons offer very interesting opportunities to generate fully-3D novel interconnections and switching devices. In fact, the refractive index modification induced to realize the self-confinement regime can be also used by a second light beam as a waveguide.
Eugenio Fazio is a professor of Optics and Experimental Physics at Sapienza Università di Roma, and since 1992 directs the Ultrafast Photonics Laboratory at the Department of Fundamental and Applied Sciences for Engineering. He is also one of the founders and the technical director of OptSensor s.r.l., a spin-off company of Sapienza Università di Roma. He is an experimental physicist, interested in nonlinear optics, spatial solitons and soliton waveguides in photo refractive media. He is also interested in linear and nonlinear nano-photonics and recently he is working on the photonics of biological structures and optical biomorphism. He has published about 150 scientific papers on international journals and several book chapters. He organizes many conferences like Optical MicroSystems, two-year Topical Meeting Series of the European Optical Society since 2005.
