EPSRC grant award to work on Semiconductor lasers on a graph

by

Congratulations to Dr R Sapienza (Physics), Professor M Barahona (Mathematics) and Professor O Hess (Physics) on their EPSRC grant award.

The project’s goal is to develop tuneable and multi-function lasers, which can be easily integrated into next-generation lab-on-chip devices, able to support the growth of future on-chip optical computation, information technology and diagnostic tools for healthcare. Being able to switch on and off their emission could enable data processing with >10 GHz speeds, and it could act as an optical transistor for analogue optical computing, as re-programmable processing units for neuromorphic computing, for data security, novel imaging and diagnostics technologies taking advantage of their very narrow spectral lines and high sensitivity.
