The mission of the group can be described as exploring the physics and technology of nonlinear optical processes with emphasis on nano-photonics. This includes a wide range of light intensities and time scales, research on novel or improved light sources (ranging from integrated photonics to the strongest laser in the Netherlands), and it includes the selection and control of suitable nonlinear media and advanced optical components. The research currently covers three main themes, nano-structured photonics, linear and nonlinear optics and extreme nonlinear optics.
To perform this research programme, the group participates in strategic alliances with various partners, including the Applied Nanophotonics Research Orientation of Mesa+ Institute for Nanotechnology.
