Slow light in nanostructured materials

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    The possibility to reduce the speed of light is essential for the creation of compact photonic chips for all-optical signal processing, the goal pursued by leading international research centres. This project will develop innovative concepts for dynamical control of the fundamental properties of optical waves in tunable and nonlinear nanostructured materials. Flexible manipulation of slow light will open up new possibilities for parallel switching of pulses, all-optical sensing and monitoring, and optical computations. Anticipated collaborations with experimental groups will further contribute to the development of nano-technologies in Australia that may enable the next generation of all-optical devices for global communication networks.
