This project will assist in the development of a quantum-encrypted free-space laser communications system for secure high-bandwidth ground-to-ground and ground-to-satellite applications. This interdisciplinary project brings together experts in link acquisition and tracking, adaptive optics, quantum key distribution and digital signal processing implemented on an FPGA.
Recent advances in laser technology now enable the combination of multiple high-quality lasers into a single high-power beam. The aim of this project is to investigate such `coherently-combined' laser systems within the context of Earth-to-Space laser transmission. Applications of this technology include satellite laser ranging, clock transfer and free-space optical communications, and space debris tracking and remote manouevring.
Optical cavities are widely used in physics and precision measurement. This project will explore the use of modern machine learning methods for the control of optical cavities.
Using non-classical light states on laser interferometric gravitational-wave detectors, to further enhance the best length measurement devices in the world.
