Research project: Semiconductor Fibre Devices for Nonlinear Photonics

Currently Active: 

Semiconductor photonics is fast becoming one of the most active areas of research offering optoelectronic solutions for a wide range of applications not only in telecoms, but also in medicine, imaging, spectroscopy, and sensing. For example: ultra-fast all-fibre optical switches will reduce costs and improve efficiency of communications systems, whilst laser sources which operate in the mid infrared can be used for environmental sensing and medical applications.

The incorporation of the active semiconductor component into the fibre geometry provides an important step towards seamlessly linking semiconductor photonics with existing fibre infrastructures. Our research aims to develop elegant semiconductor fibre based devices over the range of these diverse fields to maximise impact and ensure a high level of both scientific and commercial relevance.
