Unconventional Light Waves and Anapoles
Dr N Papasimakis, Dr V Savinov, Prof N Zheludev
Applications accepted all year round
In this project we will apply nanophotonic tricks to the generation of topologically complex electromagnetic fields, which can reveal hidden (otherwise undetectable) excitations in matter.

Non-classical optical sources emitting single photons are required for applications in quantum information science. Quantum cryptography, for instance, exploits the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics to provide unconditional security for communication.
Hollow Core Fibres for Mid-infrared Gas Sensing, Quantum Optics & Metrology
Dr N Wheeler, Dr F Poletti, Dr T Bradley
31 August 2019
This project focusses on exploiting novel hollow core fibres to make new mid-infrared devices. The mid-infrared spectral region represents a rapidly growing research area which is especially interesting for gas-light interactions as the strongest absorption features of many gas species lie in this region.
