General description


autumn-of-nankai-university         micro-optical-cavity-laboratory

The main research topics in the MOE Key Laboratory of Weak Light Nonlinear Photonics in School of Physics of Nankai University include nonlinear optics, quantum optics, metamaterials: design, optical properties and their applications, vectorial optical field, lattice optics, fiber optics and growth of various optical materials such as lithium niobate crystal, and the research topics in this project include quantum nonlinear optics, micro-resonators, fiber optics in my group (Prof. Guoquan Zhang) and metamaterials and lattice optics in Prof. Jingjun Xu’s group. The laboratory is well equiped with various laser sources – from single frequency continue wave laser to fs laser, various spectrometer including confocal Raman spectrometer and time-resolved luminescence spectrometer, crystal growth facility, waveguide/fiber coupling and alignment system, nano/micro structure fabrication and characterization systems such as FIB, AFM and SEM systems.

As per COFUND guidelines, fellowship programmes will be based on individual-driven mobility, i.e., researchers will be able to freely choose a research topic fitting their individual needs.

The subject of the research project is expected to contribute to European competitiveness and to be in the general field of Photonics and/or its applications. Within these limitations, applicants can freely choose both their research topic and their host organisation, in the spirit of the ‘European Charter for Researchers’.
