img_intro At the center for photonic innovations, we use optical nanofibers as a key technology for the exploration of quantum photonics. We aim to develop technologies which can be combined with quantum information systems which are expected to become prevalent over the next decade.

The Center for Photonic Innovations is the home of "photonic crystal nanofiber" technology. Using femto-second laser technology we manufacture thousands of "nano-craters" on the surface of nanofibers (diameter ~ 500 nm), creating high finesse cavities. Click here to visualize the fabrication process.

We also produce effective photonic crystal nanobeam cavities by combining an nanofabricated grating and a nanofiber. Quantum emitters placed on the surface of the nanofiber experience enhanced spontaneous emission at the cavity resonance wavelength.
