PHOTONICS

Martin Dawson and Gerald Buller

cross university initiatives
Cross-university initiatives
  • Proposed ‘Max Planck Centre’
  • - ‘Measurement and Observation at the Quantum Limit’:
  • gravitational physics/astro-photonics and quantum optics
  • - Partner MPI’s: Hannover (Gravitational Physics), Erlangen (Science of Light)…
  • - ‘Virtual Centre’ but administered from Glasgow
  • - Initial partners: Glasgow, Strathclyde, St. Andrews
  • - Support being discussed with EPSRC, STFC, SFC, MP Germany & the Universities
  • Quantum Information/Measurement (SUPA II)
  • - Stefan Kuhr, SUPA Chair in Quantum Information (Strath), with major ERC grant
  • - 2011 appointments of Maniscalcoand Lovett; 2012 Leach (all HW)
  • - Padgett-led EPSRC Programme Grant (Glasgow, Strath)
  • and Critical Mass Grant (Glasgow, Strath, HW)
  • - Quantum imaging, quantum metrology, quantum information processing,
  • quantum cryptography
new enhanced themes
New/enhanced themes
  • Neurophotonics and Biophotonics
  • - Keith Mathieson (Strath) in Neurophotonics: SUPA/PaLS
  • - PG in ‘Structured Light’ (Dholakia: St. And) incl. Neurophotonics/Optogenetics
  • - Gail McConnell’s Chair in Biophotonics (Strath)
  • Hybrid and Flexible Photonics
  • - Hybrid inorganic/organic optoelectronics; mechanically flexible photonics and
  • nanomembranes
  • - ICT Large Grant ‘HYPIX’ (Strath, St. And, Edinburgh)
  • - Visible light communications and novel sensing technology
  • Ultrafast Photonics
  • - ICT Large Grant ‘MUSIC’ (St. Andrews, Strath)
  • - Appointments/promotions: Faccio (HW), Hunt (Strath), Thomson (HW),
  • Wynne (Glas)
  • - Cross-SUPA collaborative work
  • - Industrial and/or inter-disciplinary collaborations
industrial engagement and kt
Industrial engagement and KT
  • Fraunhofer Centre for Applied Photonics (F-CAP)
  • - Initial focus: solid state lasers and laser-based systems
  • - Physical centre in Glasgow, Strathclyde-linked with SUPA outreach
  • - £9M initial investment, including £3M from FraunhoferGesselschaft
  • - 5 years initial support, from June 2012
  • New industry-interfacing Chairs
  • - e.g. Selex-Galileo Chair in Solid State Lasers at HW
  • EPSRC Industrial Doctorate Centre (IDC)
  • - Optics and Photonics Technologies
  • - HW, St. Andrews, Strathclyde and Glasgow
  • - Funded until 2018 (£10M)
  • - UK’s largest photonics CDT in terms of numbers of PG students (55 currently)
