Collective effects and optomechanics in ultra-cold matter (ColOpt)

Start date: Jan 1, 2017, End date: Dec 31, 2020,

The network “Collective effects and optomechanics in ultra-cold matter” (ColOpt) will train early-stage researchers (ESR) in fundamental science and applications in the areas of cold atom and quantum physics, optical technologies and complexity science to promote European competiveness in emergent quantum technologies. It consists of nine academic nodes and three companies from six European countr ...

Compact High pErformance QUantum cascadE laseR Sensors (CHEQUERS)

Start date: Mar 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2018,

In this proposal we describe a timely and disruptive solution to the long-standing and vexing problem of the rapid stand-off detection of explosive, toxic or otherwise hazardous materials which are present within potential- or post-terrorist attack or industrial accident sites. We will achieve this by realising highly sensitive, state-of-the-art handheld and tripod-mounted instruments based upon a ...

Ultra-fast Laser Surfacing of Teeth for Resistance to Erosion (LUSTRE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2014, End date: Dec 31, 2017,

"The “LUSTRE-IAPP” has emerged from a background of successful bilateral academic and industrial collaborations within the UK and Italian partners, in which the knowledge transfer and training of ERs and ESRs are centred on four key aspects of academic research leading to KT and commercialisation activities. These are in the areas of: a) in the engineering and fabrication of laser glass hosts for ...

Generic Integrated Forensic Toolbox for CBRN incidents (GIFT CBRN)

Start date: Sep 1, 2014, End date: Aug 31, 2017,

"Forensic investigation is a key component in the fight against crime and the protection of EU societies. At present it is hampered by a lack of protocols and training in carrying out forensic analysis on CBRN-contaminated materials. The aim of GIFT-CBRN is to develop a forensic toolbox for investigating CBRN incidents. This toolbox would provide (1) procedures, sampling methods and detection of C ...

NEWLED will develop high efficiency and high brightness monolithic and hybrid all-semiconductor WHITE light-emitting GaN-based diodes. Power losses due to phosphor conversion and the problem of different ageing rates of the GaN LED pump will be eliminated by the development of phosphor free structures with increased brightness (power emitted per surface per angle). NEWLED will enhance the efficien ...

There is a strong pull for practical ultrafast laser sources from a magnitude of applications and associated markets. These applications often demand systems with high reliability and maintenance-/alignment-free operation while at the same time, be highly adaptable to cater the numerous requirements imposed by the specific application. One of the key issues that prevent state-of-the-art ultrafast ...

High Brightness COnical REfraction Lasers (HICORE)

Start date: Oct 1, 2012, End date: Sep 30, 2014,

A fundamental property of lasers is the ability to propagate and be focused to very small spots with little divergence, termed beam quality. The ability to achieve high power low divergence operation (high brightness) is of paramount importance for many applications, both existing and potential, of laser devices. Effective ways to scale output power without compromising beam quality are limited ...
