Study Extreme Photonics at the University of Ottawa

Imagine yourself:

  • Photographing an electron using  a light pulse that lasts only  1/100,000,000,000,000,000 seconds!
  • Confining light to less than 1/10 of its wavelength; producing just a single photon whenever it is needed or improving solar cell efficiency using nano-technology.

These breakthroughs represent just some of the exciting research now underway in the Extreme Photonics program at the University of Ottawa. That’s where 10 professors combine theory and experiment to break new boundaries of photonics.
