Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
OTTAWA, Ontario, Oct. 22, 2020 — The Max Planck Society announced an extended, five-year round of funding for the Max Planck—University of Ottawa Centre for Extreme and Quantum Photonics (MPC-EQP). The international collaboration supports workshops, student and researcher exchanges, and joint research projects at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light (MPL) in Erlangen, the University of Ottawa in Ontario, and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching. The initiative has been ongoing since 2015, and was previously extended for five years in 2019.

Fundamentals and applications of structured light, nanophotonics, biophotonics, the development of optical methods relevant to quantum information and nanoscience, the study of attosecond phenomena, and the fabrication of devices and novel materials for use in classical and quantum optics are among the areas of research work commencing from the center.

Funding was announced prior to the MPC-EQP annual meeting on Oct. 19 and 20. The Center for Quantum Materials is the second German-Canadian partnership initiated by the Max Planck Society; there are 20 such centers in 13 countries worldwide.

GLOSSARY
nanophotonics
The study of how light interacts with nanoscale objects and the technology of applying photons to the manipulation or sensing of nanoscale structures.
quantum
Smallest amount into which the energy of a wave can be divided. The quantum is proportional to the frequency of the wave. See photon.
