Photonics Research Centre (PRC)

Address of the Research Centre #470-P, Peenya Industrial Area, 4th Phase, Bengaluru-560058
Mission of the Research Centre We are committed to an endeavour of bringing together the Engineering and Science fraternities to seek innovative solutions for the development of contemporary technology driven photonics and opto-electronic devices in the areas of telecommunication, optical communication and networks and fiber integrated optics
Research Goals of the Centre
  • To apply the contemporary techniques for the design and development of fiber and integrated optic components to meet the performance requirements
  • To perform research on design and optimization studies to arrive at geometric configuration of appropriate optics and opto-electronics components to realise the specified system performance requirments
  • To model, simulate and analyse the non-linear properties of fiber material to characterise the performance of optics or opto-electronic based components used in advanced electronic systems
  • To formulate and recommend solutions to the challenges of multidisciplinary approach in the design and integration of subsystems of contemporary photonic crystals, photonic devices and fibre optic communication systems
  • To transfer technologies developed for commercialization and entrepreneurship
  • To dessiminate knowledge on concepts and practices of optical communication and opto-electronics
  • To develop and pursue joint initiatives for collaboration and partnership with Universities, Research Centres and Industries to offer solution to societal relevant problems
