Optical Interaction Science

Optical Material Studies

This group focuses on the development and characterization of novel optical materials. Materials include those with superior transmission in the UV, visible near and mid-IR portions of the spectrum, those having unusual nonlinear optical properties, and photonic structures with unusual properties.

     

Optical Material Studies (OM)

Interested audience.This group is involved with the development and characterization of new and improved optical materials. Materials include those with superior transmission in the UV, visible near- and mid-infrared portions of the spectrum for use in passive and active optical elements and devices as well as those having unusual nonlinear optical properties for use in switches and limiters. Examples of novel materials include quantum-engineered multiple quantum wells for lasing, photonic structures with unusual properties (negative index, left-handed, highly nonlinear, etc.) and sintered ceramic materials displaying superior hardness, strength and transmission in the infrared.
