Deep UV QPM materials

Based around recently developed micro machining technologies – which have led to breakthroughs in power handling for nonlinear optics – we now wish to extend these approaches to materials for the deep UV spectral region. Using state-of-the-art physical machining you will be creating bespoke, sub-nanometre surface with nanometre precision to create new types of nonlinear materials to create efficient lasers down to <200nm wavelengths, which will be important in lithography, bio-detection, quantum science, ultrashort pulse physics and material processing. By combining novel fabrication approaches with well developed commercial materials you will be expanding the area of engineered nonlinear optics deep into the ultra-violet.
