Competencies and research activities
The Photonics Research Group was formed by prof. V. Passaro in 2004. It is mainly involved in modeling, design and technology of photonic devices and sensors in group IV materials (silicon and compounds, germanium, carbide, tin), non linear integrated optical devices for fast signal processing, wavelength conversion, amplification, sensing, etc..,, fiber optic sensors and design of fiber optic passive optical networks for telecommunication systems. Since 2004 the group ha published more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed international journals and more than 100 papers in book chapters and international conference proceedings.
Collaborations with companies and institutions
The group has established prestigious collaborations with several national and international research groups, especially from University of Surrey, University of Southampton, University of Glasgow, Russian Academy of Sciences, University of Trento, Universidad de Valencia, Universidad Politecnica de Valencia, Mcquarie University, University of Massachusetts at Boston, National Institute of Optics at Pozzuoli, National Institute of Nuclear Physics at Bari.
