Photonics is concerned with the use of photons to work with or to replace electrons in certain communications, computer, or control applications traditionally carried out by electronics. Photonics has already proved to be one of the key technologies of the information age.
In our laboratory, we study fabrication and properties of active and passive planar and channel optical waveguides as basic elements of photonics devices in optical crystals and optical glasses.
