2 - Solid state lasers and photonic devices for integrated systems

The research activity concerns the development of solid state lasers and integrated photonic devices for application to environmental monitoring, telecommunications and coherent control of light. This research is characterized by a highly innovative content. In particular, on one hand it aims at a deep comprehension of the basic physical phenomena underlying the topics of interest, on the other hand it intends to find new and forefront solutions in the addressed application fields. The main research projects are:

  • Active integrated optical devices for the realization of waveguide amplifiers and lasers operating in the third telecommunications window;
  • Frequency-stabilized solid state lasers, based on innovative active materials, for metrology and environmental monitoring;
  • Micro-fabrication, by means of femtosecond laser pulses, of photonic devices for telecommunications and microfluidic;
  • Fiber optic lasers and amplifiers for telecommunications and environmental monitoring;
  • Guided waves nonlinear optics for all-optical devices and solitonic propagation;
  • Fiber gratings and periodic optical structures for coherent control of light.

 

The above projects are also part of the research activity of the Istituto di Fotonica e Nanotecnologie (IFN) of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR).
