Light provides an enormous amount of information about the world around us. It allows us to examine processes on scales from the very small (cells) to the very large (galaxies). By using the different properties and types of light, we can gather information on the chemical and physical makeup of materials, compounds and biological samples.
This is invaluable for applications as diverse as pharmaceuticals, agriculture and medical imaging. Light can also be used to transmit information; it forms the backbone of the fast fibre-optic networks that make up today’s internet. The general area of generating and manipulating light is known as photonics.
In this series of videos, the photonics researchers at the Centre for Advanced Photonics and Process Analysis (CAPPA), a research group of Cork Institute of Technology co-located at the Tyndall National Institute, will:
