Emergent Photonics Laboratory

The Emergent Photonics Lab is a fertile research enviroment at the University of Sussex focused on the "emergent" photonic properties in complex nonlinear optical systems. The lab presently hosts the work of 17 researchers directed by Alessia Pasquazi and Marco Peccianti, the lab founders. In particular, the research staff now consists of three Post Doctoral researchers, seven PhD students and seven undergraduate research students. Research interests are split into two major directions, on integrated nonlinear photonic systems and their application in quantum technologies and in cutting edge Terahertz science.

This fully funded 3.5 year studentship is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). Granting them access to state-of-the-art photonics equipment available within the EPic infrastructure, the project involves the development of a self-stabilised micro-comb suitable for industrial deployment.
