New Grant – Royal Society Paul Instrument Fund

The group has been awarded a grant by the Royal Society to develop a new optical instrument known as the i-TCSPC. The Paul Instrument Fund, established by the late RW Paul, is intended to help the design and construction of a new piece of apparatus.

The new apparatus will leverage single-photon interference to increase the throughput and speed of spectral acquisition for extremely-low intensity and rapidly varying signals, with potential application in nanotechnology, metrology, and life sciences.

Work on the £52k project will begin in October 2016, and run for two years.
