Research

The research of the Optics and Photonics group covers a range of topics of modern optics and photonics. Our work encompasses various aspects of physical optics, particularly in the nano scale, development of methods to manipulate matter with laser light, characterization of high-frequency acoustic disturbances in solids by optical means as well as design and construction of novel light sources. The work involves use of both theoretical and experimental techniques and it is carried out in close collaboration with local, national and international research partners.
