EE Ph.D. Candidate, Salih Salahli (advisor Natalia Litchinitser) won the student poster competition at the ARO MURI Program Review meeting on Filamentation Science. 

The poster, titled “Necklace beam generation in nonlinear colloidal engineered media” is by authors Salih Z. Silahli, Wiktor Walasik, and Natalia M. Litchinitser. In this work the authors analytically and numerically show the possibility of necklace beam generation originating from spatial modulational instability of vortex beams in engineered soft-matter nonlinear media with different types of exponential nonlinearity.
