Resources and equipment


This research group uses well-equipped facilities that are built around four laboratories: the Optical Communications Lab, the Sensors Lab, the Photonics Lab, and the Teralab. The computing and simulation facilities include more than 50 high-end computers that run software for electrical (microwave) and lightwave devices design as well as optical networks and systems simulation. In terms of instrumentation, a wide variety of electrical and lightwave measurements are available. Novel devices and subsystems can also be fully characterised using the wide range of electrical and lightwave components in the labs.

The non-consumable equipment available from own contributions and other organizations is:
