Cooperation between DIT and the State Optical Institute, St. Petersburg
Professor Alexandre Baranov is currently visiting the Department of Electronic and Communication Engineering at DIT. He is working with Dr Kevin Berwick on a project entitled Advanced Heterostructure Materials for Ultrafast Information and Communication Circuits. The project is a collaboration between the Dept of Electronic and Communications Engineering and FOCAS in DIT and the Laboratory of Photophysics and Photochemistry of Molecular System and Quantum Nanostructures (LPMSQN) of S.I.Vavilov State Optical Institute, St.-Petersburg.
Several other Universities, including TCD, Queens University Belfast, Warwick and Stuttgart Universities will also provide input, particularly in the area of sample preparation. The project is funded by DIT under the International Collaboration Award Scheme 2004.
