Photonics

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)


Support delivery mechanisms

Support/delivery mechanisms

  • EPSRC Programme Grant (PG) and Critical Mass (CM) Schemes

  • - PG in ‘Orbital angular momentum’ (Glasgow, Strath)

  • - PG in ‘Structured Light’ (St. And)

  • - Under review: PG in ‘Visible Light Communications’ (Strath, St. And, Edinburgh)

  • - CM in ‘Quantum Imaging’ (Glasgow, HW, Strath)

  • International Engagement and Profile Raising

  • - Max Planck Centre

  • - Scotland-Stanford (SU2P) EPSRC Science Bridges Programme

  • EPSRC Doctoral Training Centres

  • - IDC in ‘Optics and Photonics Technologies’

  • - Proposed CDT in ‘Biophotonics’

  • - Possible CDT in ‘Quantum Photonics’
