Guided light, tightly packed: novel concepts, components and applications

The International Research Training Group “Guided light, tightly packed: novel concepts, components and applications” provides excellent academic training for talented young scientists in a high impact research programme driven by a transatlantic network of one German and three Canadian partners.

The research programme of the GRK 2101 focuses on optical waveguides and related technologies to confine and control light in ultra-compact devices, which will allow generating, manipulating, and sensing light with unmatched precision and efficiency. Forefront basic research is focused on novel fiber structures, precision laser structuring, and photonic materials with tailored properties.

Based on the developed fundamental concepts and technologies for the dense integration of photonic elements with comprehensive functionality, GRK 2101 investigates their exploitation for the realisation of novel telecommunication devices, biomedical sensors, integrated quantum systems, and laser sources, as well as production technologies, and green technologies.
