This PhD project, blending theoretical and experimental approaches, aims to revolutionize quantum technologies by developing ultra-precise timing counters. Central to this endeavor is the advancement of optical frequency combs, which are the cornerstone of modern optical atomic clocks. These combs, recognized with a Nobel Prize in 2005, consist of ultraprecise, equally spaced laser lines. Our project, conducted at the forefront of integrated photonics, nonlinear physics, and smart optical computation, will push the boundaries of miniaturization for these sources. The focus is on a groundbreaking nonlinear optical wave, known as the temporal laser cavity soliton, a recent discovery at Loughborough’s Emergent Photonics Lab, for creating ultra-efficient and resilient microcombs. You will be part of Prof Alessia Pasquazi's dynamic team, contributing to novel science and producing leading-author publications in peer-reviewed journals. Presentations at selected international conferences will also be a key aspect of your role.
