Objective

The growth of the Photonics market and the great potential of Photonics in addressing global challenges creates a huge demand in innovative solutions and qualified experts with multidisciplinary skills in photonics and micro- and nano-technologies, able to advance photonic technologies towards applications ranging from spectroscopy to LIDARs. EID MOCCA responds to the huge demand of qualified experts, by providing for 4 early-stage researchers (ESRs) a world-class advanced training programme (TP), which will bring them to the level of the next generation of leaders in the field of photonics. The TP will be implemented through the unique combination of the “hands-on” research training, non-academic placements and advanced inter/multidisciplinary/inter-sectoral training, to attain scientific skills (nonlinear optics and laser physics, micro- and nano-technologies) and transferable skills. These are provided by the synergistic merging of the expertise of 3 academic, 2 non-academic beneficiaries and 1 non-academic and 2 academic partners from 4 countries. This will equip ESRs with a unique exprtise required to address global challenges such as global warming, improving accuracy of medical diagnostics, precision metrology and autonomous driving etc. MOCCA underpins innovative technological development across the entire range of photonics-based disciplines: laser physics and engineering, micro- and nano-photonic components and circuits. The unique Research Programme addresses demand in innovative solutions by developing a new generation of optical frequency comb (OFC) techniques, based on the expertise of world-leading academic and industrial partners. Research outcomes will result in new products, services and markets, based on advancing OFC generators with required characteristics in science, industry, and healthcare. In the social context, the EID outcomes will lead to raised public awareness on the economic and social impact of OFC techniques.
