VUB B-PHOT SCiRep ChaoticAttractor

During the continuous quest for maximizing the protection of data, substantial research has been performed in the domain of lasers and optical chaos. Recently B-PHOT researchers demonstrated that using mechanical strain, polarization chaos could be triggered in commercial VCSELs. Their article with results on “Strain induced polarization chaos in a solitary VCSEL” was published in Scientific Reports.

VUB Science Show welcomes 1500 students for a journey to photonics

The VUB Science Show on photonics is a spectacular show that gives young minds insight in the potential of science and engineering in an entertaining way. A team of enthusiastic PhD researchers takes the students for an interactive journey into the world of light technology on 5 and 6 February. In half a day, multiple demonstrations bring them from the origin of light and photons to lasers, from the manipulation of light to optical fibers for data communication or for medical imaging applications such as endoscopy.
