High finesse rod resonator circuits for quantum sensing

The objective of this project is to develop a platform for real-world deployable high-finesse optical resonators. In the past several years high finesse cavities have led to a number of impressive demonstrations such as optical comb generation, entangled single photon generation for a variety of the sensor systems. Following on from innovations realised during a previous studentship, this project will develop a fabrication methodology and explore a new range of integrated resonator circuits.

A key aim of the project is to improve the robustness of high-finesse cavities via commercially scalable fabrication process.  

The project will be laboratory focused, working with lasers and optical systems and our extensive cleanroom and machining facilities.
