Photonics technology benefits when a beam of light can be manipulated without distorting its phase and intensity profile. This means that even after manipulation the information embedded in the beam do not get loss or jumbled. Recently, an orbital angular … Read More
So how do fireflies glow? Fireflies use superoxide, an oxygen molecule with an extra electron. The molecule is toxic to cells but fireflies evolved to use the molecule to glow. Researchers from Yale University and Connecticut College explain how in … Read More

Let’s have a game. Can you invent a word for light? Think of an original word that can best describe the thing which we now call “light”. This is not new by the way, as scientists have been coining words … Read More
The Photonics Research Group is currently in the process of improving our directory of former members. If you have done your bachelor’s or master’s thesis or dissertation with the PRL (1999-present) or the Laser Physics Group (1983-1999), we appreciate if … Read More
