Optical Surfaces to make optics for 'ZettaWatt' laser system

UK-based Optical Surfaces has been selected by the Gérard Mourou Center for Ultrafast Optical Science (CUOS) at the University of Michigan (USA) to provide beam expander optics for its zettawatt-equivalent ultrashort pulse laser system

Photonic chips can overcome the expected limit to Moore’s Law and will help tackle energy sustainability issues. (Image: PhotonDelta)

Dutch photonic chip ecosystem PhotonDelta secures €1.1bn funding

The funding will be used to invest in photonic startups and scaleups, expand production and research, attract and train talent, drive adoption, and develop a world-class design library
