Exotic Light Sources

We work on the conception, design and development of novel fibre-based laser sources operating in spectral domains such as the ultraviolet or the mid-infrared, traditionally inaccessible in standard fibre optics

Multimode nonlinear & quantum optics

The inherent multimode nature of anti-resonant hollow-core fibres opens new routes to efficient frequency conversion and spatial structuring of the outcoupled radiation, even in the single-photon limit

Smart photonics

Modern machine learning approaches such as deep learning using artificial neural networks enable the optimization of nonlinear optical processes and allow for the discovery of nonintuitive photonic designs with unique optical properties
