Topology in a synthetic dimension: unidirectional frequency up/down conversion of light with fake magnetic fields

Francesco Piccioli

Hi all, my name is Francesco. I’m a PhD student in the theoretical group of Prof. Iacopo Carusotto in Trento and in the experimental group of Prof. Alexander Szameit in Rostock (DE). As a theoretician my work is mainly focused on synthetic gauge fields and artificial dimensions in lattice models while as an experimentalist I blow up things using femtosecond laser pulses.
