We have a wide-ranging portfolio of research, all focused un using nanophotonics to control light and its propagation.

Sebastian Schulz awarded best presentation price at BICOP 2018

Last week Sebastian Schulz attended the inaugeralĀ IEEE British and Irish Conference on Optics and Photonics (BICOP) held at the Royal Society in London. He presented a poster on our work on overcoming the delay-bandwidth limit using nonreciprocity, as well as … Continue reading

Flat-band superprism in photonic crystals

One of the key tasks in integrated photonics is the separation or demultiplexing of multiple different wavelength channels that are transported through the same waveguide. One way to separate different wavelength is to use refraction in a prism and the … Continue reading

Thermally stable integrated laser

One problem in silicon photonics is that current integrated light sources are very sensitive to variations in the operating temperature. Together with the Centre for Advanced Photonics & Process Analysis we have developed a hybrid laser with an external reflector … Continue reading

PhC based tunable optical buffer

In collaboration with the Centre for Advanced Photonics and Process Analysis at the Cork Institute of Technology, we have demonstrated a low loss optical buffer based on photonic crystal cavities, demonstrating a record low loss per storage time. The delay … Continue reading
