The project "Extreme nonlinear optics in epsilon-near-zero materials" has been funded by US Army Research Laboratory! 
The objective of this project is to identify and study extreme nonlinear phenomena that occur in epsilon-near-zero materials. We will exploit the frequency regime were singularity driven enhancements of the local field can boost of nonlinear and quantum optical phenomena and plan to observe novel, extreme nonlinear events that may be accessible under these circumstances, such as solitons, breathers or rogue waves and dispersive shock waves.
