Summary on Grant Application Form
The proposal concerns the development of a range of novel photonic materials and waveguide fabrication processes. The work is focussed on several key areas of photonics technology: planar lightwave materials and devices, microstructured fibres (holey and photonic bandgap), micro-structured crystalline devices and materials, compound glass processing and fibres, and optical processing of materials. Particular promise for a range of active/tuneable waveguide components is shown by structures with high/low optical nonlinearity, quasi-phase-matched poled structures in 1- and 2- dimensions and composite/integrated microstructures made from different materials. The proposed research will result in a new generation of photonic devices of unprecedented performance and functionality with application in telecommunications, high-power lasers and beam delivery, industrial processing, laser projection and display, bio-sensing and bio-imaging.
