题 目：Tailoring Complex Optical Fields（复杂广场裁剪）
报告人：Qiwen Zhan, Ph.D.（Professor，Department of Electro-Optics and Photonics，University of Dayton）
Abstract：Recently there is an increasing interest in complex optical fields with spatially variant amplitude, phase and/or polarization within the beam cross-section. Scalar optical vortices carrying orbital angular momentum and vectorial vortices such as radially, azimuthally polarized beams are among the most intensively studied examples. The added degrees of freedom arising from the amplitude, phase and polarization diversity within the beam cross-section enables scientists and engineers to break the limits imposed by conventional wisdom in many optical and photonic applications. Applications of these complex optical fields in many promising areas and new commercial products continue to emerge. This talk aims to serve as an introduction of the fundamentals and applications in this field to broad audience.
