Hot Electron Applications and Technology

Online Virtual meeting

New research on “Reactive Plasmonics”, led by King’s College London and Imperial College London, is developing technologies to harness the large intrinsic thermal energy of light. Remarkably, “hot electrons” excited by light in metals achieve temperatures of many 1000°C, while the host metal remains near ambient conditions. This activates a range of opto-electronic and photo-chemical…

Scaling Up and Commercialising Metamaterials webinar

Online Virtual meeting

Once an aspect of metamaterials technology has been identified with the potential in a particular application, there is a need to look to scale up the production to develop demonstrators and prototypes. This activity is often associated with a start-up or SME since the technology is brought in from research. The needs of these small…

Towards a European Strategy on Quantum Photonics Integrated Circuits- Online Workshop

Online Virtual meeting

Photonic Integration in general and Quantum Photonic Integrated Circuits (QPICs) in particular are considered as an enabler for quantum technology, and conversely quantum technology is regarded as a major emerging market for photonic integration. In order to profit from the European Quantum Flagship and the Photonics21 ETP that are actively supporting these fields in Europe,…
