Research is focused on theoretical and experimental study of optical waveguides mainly for applications in optical communications and sensors. It comprises research of both linear and nonlinear optical properties of silica optical fibres, active fibres doped by rare-earth ions for fibre amplifiers and lasers employing stimulated emission as well as stimulated Raman scattering, and microstructure fibres. Research in Integrated Optics is directed toward theoretical analysis and experimental characterisation of planar guided-wave structures and subsystems, photonic crystal waveguides and microresonator-based devices. Research teams of the Department of Guided-Wave Photonics tightly collaborate with the Department of Optical Sensors on theoretical analysis and experimental characterization of waveguide based sensor structures and devices.
