Welcome to the homepage of the research group on Nonlinear Dynamics, Nonlinear Optics and Lasers (DONLL).
Our group belongs to the Department of Physics and Nuclear Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalonia (UPC). We are located in the Gaia Research building, Terrassa Campus of the University (Rambla Sant Nebridi 22, Terrassa).
Our general goal is to study the nature and effects of nonlinear phenomena in different types of physical systems, with a special emphasis on optical devices such as photonic crystals, lasers and microcavities. An important motivation of these studies is to elucidate the potential use of nonlinear effects in technological applications such as optical communications.
Additionally, stochastic and nonlinear effects are studied in other disciplines, including systems biology, neuroscience, nonlinear electronics and climatic effects.
