Advanced Photonics Research
The Advanced Photonics Research Department conducts cutting-edge research at its state-of-the-art laboratory - developing disruptive innovation based on Photonics technologies (over free-space, fiber-based, and down to the chip level integration). Motivated by the underlying challenges met by industries, our proposed innovations and new concepts are harnessing the benefits of linear and non-linear interaction of light with matter, to manipulate the photon properties, and maximize the performances of strategic building blocks. The defined Advanced Photonics Research roadmap focuses on six key areas: Light Communication, Light Computing, Light Sensing, Light in Space & Underwater, Light Powering, Light on Chip.
There are three activities currently ongoing, (i) Light Processing for microwave signal generation, (ii) Light Sensing for material detection based on Raman spectrometer, (iii) Light on Chip for integrated solution of microwave generation and dual comb sensing — The ones reflected by the current Divisions of the department.
