Project description
Photonics, the science and technology of light, is a key-enabling technology of the 21st century9. Photonics drives innovation in many sectors, offering unique solutions while other conventional approaches are reaching their limits in terms of speed, accuracy, and capacity. The impact of photonics in our daily lives is massive, spreading across several activity sectors from high-speed communications, life sciences and health care to high-resolution imaging, lighting and displays, as well as security and safety. The rationale of PRESI is to fulfil some of the immediate research and industry needs by providing comprehensive fabrication and characterization capabilities for photonics devices and components. The infrastructure will allow for the development of new materials and integrated components to be used in light-based technology applications including high-resolution imaging, high-sensitivity sensing, quantum technologies, and energy efficient harvesting and production.
