Abstract

Light is everywhere, and we use it every day in its various forms. The most successful example of a light source is the laser. Since its invention, lasers have found a myriad of applications, jumping from academic laboratories to industrial applications. In the field of photonics, light is created, controlled, and manipulated for numerous useful things. An important branch is integrated photonics, where devices guiding light to perform different operations are fabricated massively on a flat surface.

One possible application is the interaction of light with an unknown sample to retrieve valuable information about its properties. This technique has been successfully implemented over the years but involves the use of bulky setups. Manipulating light at chip-scale has opened a venue to replace these large instruments with devices of the size of a coin. 

In this popular science talk, I will give an overview of the basics of photonics and how we can use it for different purposes. Additionally, I will cover some of the challenges and progress we are working on at Chalmers.
