- Dublin City University Wins Research Grant
Dublin City University in Ireland has received a €23 million grant for a variety of research projects, including photonics and imaging.
Recipients include the school’s National Biophotonics & Imaging Platform, which will use the grant money to develop enhanced spectroscopy and microscopy techniques to view molecules in human cells, to study the origins of major diseases. The school’s Nanoscience and Nanoscale Technologies for Ireland program will use its portion of the grant to develop photonic devices for the next generation of networks and to study the growth, characterization and applications of nanomaterials. The International Centre for Neurotherapeutics also will receive funding to research neuroscience, immunology and cell biology. The grant announcement is part of the Programme for Research in Third-Level Institutions.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
