By developing photonic solutions from integrated device to system level, the research addresses applications in optical telecommunications, quantum photonics, microwave systems (i.e., 5/6G and radars), sensing, environmental monitoring, healthcare, and space observation. Key to most of these activities is the close collaboration with INPHOTEC – the photonic technology Center of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna – that allows the development of integrated photonic devices on different material platforms, from the device design to the final system packaging. This capability is complemented by state-of-the-art optical laboratories and supported by a large group of researchers with complimentary skills. The large network of industrial collaborations available within the unit provides an established route for technological demonstration up to TRL 6.
