Setup for the experimental characterization of high-Q ring resonator for gyro applications


The Optoelectronics Laboratory was formed by Professor Mario N. Armenise in late '80s, at the University of Bari (now Technical University of Bari, "Politecnico di Bari"). The Group carried out pioneering theoretical and experimental work on both optical waveguides in ferroelectric materials and optical signal processors for Space. Currently, the research interests are mainly focused on modeling, design, fabrication and characterization of optoelectronic and nanoelectronic devices for a wide spectrum of applications such as inertial navigation, biochemical sensing, optical modulation, optical beamforming and steering, optical signal processing and so on. Scientific collaborations with a number of industrial and academic institutions have been established. The Group, which is now leaded by Professor Caterina Ciminelli and is enlarging its interests towards the Nanoelectronics, is involved in several research projects funded by the European Space Agency and the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities, and Research.
