About the Ultrafast Photonics Group
We are an academic research group led by Professor Peter Delfyett at the University of Central Florida (UCF). The group conducts cutting-edge experimental research in seven state-of-the-art laboratories within the Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers (CREOL) at UCF’s main campus in Orlando, Florida. CREOL was recently expanded to comprise the Florida Photonics Center of Excellence (FPCE) and the Townes Laser Institute (TLI).
The groups research focusses on ultrafast high power optical pulses from semiconductor diode lasers, for applications in applied photonic networks and laser induced materials modification. The members of the group are students in Optics, Physics and Electrical Engineering at UCF.
