The Laboratory

The UIB laboratories located at the IMEDEA institute possess a comprehensively equipped photonic device characterisation and functional test bench.
 
The two laboratories contains an optical spectrum analyser, fast photo-detectors, a Radio Frequency analyser (up to 8 GHz) , a fast real time oscilloscope (up to 6 GHz) as well as an auto-correlator for the intensity pulse characterisation with a resolution up to 20 fs in a 200 ps window.
 
The labs are fitted with four optical tables as well as several current/voltage alimentations as well as a pattern source generator up to 1 GHz. In addition, the ONL group has recently received an 80.000 euros funding which will be used almost exclusively for buying extra experimental equipment in the perspective of the LIDAR experiments.
 
In addition, the ONL group has access to several computer clusters from either the UIB main campus or directly from the IMEDEA institute. Hence, the facilities at the host enable any full research program involving theoretical, numerical, and experimental and characterisation studies of photonic and opto-electronic devices.
