Next Generation Light Synthesis and Interaction
Photonics, the science of light, has become one of the key technologies both in fundamental and applied research, demonstrated by a plethora of innovative concepts and products which meanwhile rival those of the microelectronics industry in overall market share.
This special research program (SFB) “Next Generation Light Synthesis and Interactions” will lay the groundwork for how to generate, manipulate, and operate with light in a future generation of photonics devices.
The concept of this SFB ist to combine existing expertise and infrastructure developed within the successful SFB ADLIS ("Advanced Light Sources"), with complementary expertise that has become available to Austrian photonics community through recent appointments. The knowledge available in this interdisciplinary partnership of several experimental and theoretical groups in Graz, Innsbruck and Vienna will be focused on the following three core areas:
- Light Synthesis
- Light Cavities
- Light-Matter Interaction.
