Optics and Photonics


Faster, smaller and more energy-efficient photonics for ubiquitous applications.

Optics and photonics have contributed, and will still contribute critically to the modern information society due to the high transmission speed and the abundant spectral bandwidth of light. We conduct research and education over topics ranging from basic physical investigation of emerging optical materials (including plasmonic materials, novel polymers, and metamaterials), to semiconductor optics, silicon photonics, and optical communication, towards applications like lighting, detectors, spectroscopy, sensors, high-speed photonic circuits, and even solar-energy harvesting.

We participate in the Linnaeus center in Advanced Optics and Photonics (ADOPT).
