Course content

The project aims at developing a novel integrated optical circuits for optical data communication. The process developed for implanting in glass using lasers will be employed for this. The selected researcher will be working in collaboration with the partners of the SeaMatics project. The technology developed has already exploited for non-invasive glucose sensing and anticounterfeiting in glass . The developed integrated photonic devices will have huge significance for next generation data communication and sensing.
