Novel hollow fibers for novel lasers

While I was working in Bath last year, I gave a major fundamental contribution to the redaction of a research proposal to the Engineering and Physical Research Council, concerning the development of novel hollow core antiresonant fibers and their use in combination with ultraviolet lasers. The project proposal, which is a collaboration between the University of Bath, Heriot-Watt University, M-Solv Ltd, Litron Lasers, Powerlase Photonics Ltd and Choerent Scotland,  was submitted shortly after I left Bath and it has now been granted more than 700 000 GBP to the University of Bath and Heriot-Watt University. The title I have chosen for this 3 years project follows the style of my previous 2 publications in the subject: “Hollow antiresonant fibres for visible and ultraviolet beam delivery”.
