Abstract :
This multi-disciplinary programme aims at developing sophisticated laser sources as well as advanced nonlinear and quantum optics measurement capabilities that are not yet available in the Asia-Pacific region outside of Japan. A substantial portion of the research effort is devoted to studying the availability of reliable and precise nonlinear optical characterisation using advanced measurement techniques on thin-film materials for practical photonic devices. Organic and inorganic  materials, in particular metal oxide thin films, are investigated for photonic applications. Advanced techniques for measuring ultrafast (picosecond and shorter) third-order nonlinear optical nonlinearities needed for operation of all-optical switches and bistable devices are developed. Experimental demonstration of quantum-optics photonic devices and waveguide-optics devices are part of the research efforts involved in this project.
