International Conference
Nonlinear Optics and Excitation Kinetics in Semiconductors

Dortmund, Germany
9th to 13th of October 2016

About the Conference

The International Conference on Nonlinear Optics and Excitation Kinetics in Semiconductors (NOEKS) will be the 13th meeting in a series with an outstanding tradition in bringing together leading scientists in the field of semiconductor optics. NOEKS 13 follows this tradition by covering the most recent developments in this rapidly evolving field, which involve advanced and new materials, novel experimental techniques, and recent theoretical progress. There will be no parallel sessions, and the conference will provide plenty of opportunities for discussions.

Topics of NOEKS 13

  • Low-dimensional and nanostructured optoelectronic and photonic systems (semiconductors, metallic and hybrid systems, organic semiconductors, van der Waals heterostructures)
  • Ultrafast nonlinear dynamics (coherent effects, coherent control, quantum kinetics, terahertz phenomena)
  • Solid state based quantum optics (photon statistics, quantum light sources, entanglement)
  • Spin effects (spin orientation, relaxation and manipulation, spin transport)
  • Semiconductor based quantum information processing
  • Novel semiconductor laser physics



The conference took place in the innogy-Forum in the Dortmund U-Tower which is located in the center of the city close to the main train station. The building, constructed in 1926/27, was originally used for brewing and storing beer by the Dortmunder Union brewery. After its renovation it is used in multiple ways, for example, as museum and also Borussia Dortmund celebrated the recent championships in the Dortmunder U. It also hosts the innogy-Forum which can be used as cinema or lecture hall. The capacity is up to about 200 seats.
