The main research activities of the Group of Applied ElectroMagnetics (GAEM) focus on the study and the modelling of

  • specialty optical fibers, mainly photonic crystal fibers and multicore fibers;
  • silicon photonic devices;
  • high-power fiber lasers and amplifiers for industrial applications;
  • fiber biosensors for the detection and the identification of DNA and other specific analytes;
  • fiber lasers for ophthalmology;
  • integration of quantum communication systems with classical telecommunication networks.

The group runs

  • a clean room laboratory with facilities and equipment for fiber-based device analysis, and for characterization and development of fiber lasers and amplifiers;
  • a numerical laboratory for the development of high performance simulators of fiber guiding properties and of light propagation in amplifiers and lasers;
  • a laser laboratory with several laser sources, used for applications such as two-photon polymerization, laser scribing of thin-film photovoltaic cells, material irradiation.
