Photonics: a technology of the future at Unifr

Professor Frank Scheffold's group in the Department of Physics have recently published two major papers on the manipulation of light by materials, in the prestigious journals Physical Review Letters and Nature Communication. They describe phenomena in the interaction between light and certain complex materials.  In the future, the manipulation of light in materials is expected to play a major role in electronics - which then becomes "photonics". 

Here is a short video to get to know this group and their research.
