CC-CH-NCCR-QPHOT - National Center of Competence in Research in Quantum Photonics
From 2001-01-01 to 2004-12-31| See all projects funded under this programme / topic
The main goal of the NCCR Programme is the long-term reinforcement of Switzerlands international competitiveness in strategically significant research areas by promotion of thematic research activities of the highest quality.
AbstractThe programme provides an instrument that should ensure that the limited resources of a small country are used as efficiently as possible. A key concept is the bottom-up approach, in which researchers not only propose the themes but also create the structures themselves to carry out their research and exploit the results.
SubdivisionThe NCCR, Quantum Photonics programme covers the following thematic priorities:
- Quantum communication, i.e. the use of the quantified characteristics of light for the transmission and processing of data
- Optical nanotechnology enabling the investigation of chemical and biological processes at the molecular level
- Photon sources with improved performance
- Photonic components and systems used in optic communications
