Photonic Crystals and Microstructural Optical Fibres for Optical Device Applications

Funding: 2003: $14,000

Project Member(s): Botten, L.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Linkage International)

Start year: 2003

Summary: Photonic crystals and microstructured optical fibres, which are amongst the most exciting fields of modern optics and photonics, are set to underpin developments in the next generation of ultrahigh-bandwidth communications systems, the functionalities of which will be truly all-optical. This project will bring together of two leading research groups in these areas, enhancing their collaboration, complementing their expertise, and enabling them to develop new theoretical and computational tools to facilitate device applications. The program will coordinate research over a broad front and bring real benefits to young researchers in both France and Australia.
