Flagship Projects

The CUDOS Research Program comprises six Flagship projects, each directed towards end user-inspired applications.

Functional Metamaterials Nanoplasmonics
Functional Metamaterials and Metadevices
Artificial materials with unique properties that completely change the way light interacts with matter, and we are integrating them on photonic chips.
On-chip Nanoplasmonics
The vision of this project is to develop three- and two-dimensional nanoplasmonic structures that can allow unprecedented control of light at the sub wavelength scale.
Hybrid Integration
New photonic materials and integrating them with existing technologies to create ‘hybrid’ photonic chips with unprecedented performance, flexibility and energy efficiency.
Mid-Infrared Photonics
Generating, guiding, dispersing, concentrating and detecting light at middle-infrared wavelengths
Nonlinear Quantum Photonics
Key optical resources to enable a new wave of emerging quantum technologies
Terabit per second Photonics
Ultra high speed and low power optical signal processors by pushing the frontiers of nanophotonics, slow light, meta-materials & plasmonics.
