Summary on Grant Application Form
The emergence of nascent quantum technologies has been closely tied to the development of enabling laser sources. With commercial quantum technology applications on the horizon, the challenges in laser development move toward realising low-cost sources with a small footprint coupled with the ruggedness and modularity required from a critical component in practical quantum technology instruments. This project will fuse the partners' expertise in laser engineering (M2 and Durham), component optimisation (M2) and applications (Durham).

The aim is to achieve highly-tunable compact Ti:sapphire laser system at a significantly reduced cost, that disrupts the current market dominance of diode laser systems.
