Supercontinuum Generation

The physics of SC generation, having been studied for more than four decades, is now well understood. Detailed studies of nonlinear dynamics in optical fibers have led to several breakthroughs in extending and improving the quality of SC light sources. Read more...

Novel Glass Fabrication

Glass melting is one of the most common activities at the glass studio. During the last few years, we have developed the skills and facilities necessary to prepare high-quality optical glasses with various compositions, such as lead-silicate, tellurite, phosphate and germanate. Read more...
