The Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence Nanophotonics (LAIN) is a proud node of the Australian Research Council Centre for Ultra-high bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS).
The LAIN is helping to pursue a vision of world-leading research in on-chip photonics for all-optical signal processing.
Through Chief Investigator Professor Min Gu, the LAIN contributes to the Centre’s On-chip Nanoplasmonics Flagship project, as well as to research in the emerging field of topological photonics.
The On-chip Nanoplasmonics flagship project, led by Science Leader Min Gu and Project Leader Ben Cumming, is a particular focus of the CUDOS group in the LAIN, and has the vision to investigate and develop two- and three-dimensional nanoplasmonic structures for application to compact and sensitive on-chip photonics.
The project aims to gain knowledge and understanding of key plasmonic phenomena such as the quantum and chiral properties of plasmonic nanostructures, aims to investigate and demonstrate plasmonics enhanced functionality including on-chip nonlinear photon generation, manipulation and detection, and aims to develop plasmonic circuitry for applications such as sensing via the combination of compact nanoplasmonic elements alongside low-loss photonic components
