• Laboratory for Nonlinear Photonics is established within the Photonics
    Center, at the Institute of Physics Belgrade to control nonlinear
    phenomena and exploit them for novel optical systems. The group is led
    by Dr. Dragana Jović Savić, and it is focused on the theoretical and
    numerical work that can provide predictions of dynamic and stationary
    effects in photonic crystals physics as well as their experimental
    realization. It works in the field of nonlinear optics, nonlinear
    photonics, and optical processing, originated in the theoretical
    investigation of photonic crystals structures facilitating soliton
    formation and angular momentum transfer, surface solitons in photonic
    lattices, expanding toward novel applications of nonlinear optical
    effects in optical telecommunication and information processing such as
    Anderson localization of light in photonic lattices, reaching a new
    level in the experimental investigation in defect-guided Airy beams in
    optically induced waveguide arrays, fabrication of quasiperiodic
    waveguides such as Fibonacci lattices and deterministic aperiodic
    photonic lattices using non-diffracting beams, especially class of
    Mathieu beams.
    Our researched topics are focused on the following:
    •       Effects of light propagation in photorefractive materials: nonlinear
    •       Photonic crystals: photonic lattice
    •       Wave propagation in optically induced photonic lattices
    •       Anderson localization
    •       Developing novel concepts for all-optical communication and
    information technologies
    •       Non-diffracting beams and their mutual interaction in nonlinear media
    •       Creation of deterministic aperiodic lattices using non-diffracting
