David Marpaung (Nanophotonics), currently at the University of Sydney (http://sydney.edu.au/science/people/david.marpaung.php), has received a prestigious grant of the Netherlands Science Organisation (NWO, VIDI). His research is to be hosted in the Laser Physics and Nonlinear Optics group (LPNO) and the Applied Nanophotonic research cluster of the UT (ANP). His activities are supported by various Dutch companies that are working in the field of integrated photonics, for instance Lionix International, Smart Photonics BV and Phoenix BV.
Dr. Marpaung will investigate new technologies for integrated photonic systems, for processing information through interactions between light and 'hypersound', to realize, e.g., on-chip Brillouin processors for future wireless and optical networks.
