Synopsis:

The lecture covers physical principles and selected advanced topics in nonlinear optics for quantum technologies, namely interaction processes in nonlinear optical media, selected nonlinear effects in material media, nonlinear properties of photonic and plasmonic nanostructures, and applications of nonlinear optical effects for quantum technologies. It also discusses currentphysical problems and topics in these areas.
