Control of light in space and time in multimode optical fibres (2017–2019)
This project aims to create new devices for the measurement and manipulation of the spatial and temporal properties of light. Such devices would enable the spatiotemporal properties of light to be controlled in ways that were previously not possible. This would impact the multitude of applications, both fundamental and applied, where the inability to sufficiently control light¿s spatial and/or temporal properties are an impediment. Examples include, imaging deep into `opaque¿ objects such as human skin or brain, high-power lasers for material processing and manufacturing, optical telecommunications, and quantum computation. This project will demonstrate these aims through the development of five prototypes systems.
