Welcome to the homepage of the Ultrafast and Nonlinear Photonics Laboratory directed by Prof. Mark A. Foster at Johns Hopkins University. Our lab is dedicated to the development of next-generation ultra-high-bandwidth photonic systems and demonstrating the exciting consequences of their applications.

Recent News

Prof. Foster is giving an invited talk on our research in October at the 2016 Frontiers in Optics (FIO) conference.

We won a grant from the National Science Foundation to develop an integrated platform for quantum optical systems. This work is a collaboration with the JHU Integrated Photonics Laboratory, the Center for Distributed Quantum Computing at Stevens Institute of Technology, and the Quantum and Nonlinear Photonics Group at Columbia University. Much thanks to the NSF Division of Emerging Frontiers and Multidisciplinary Activities for supporting our research!

Our recent paper on developing a high-speed all-optical NAND gate was featured in The Optical Society’s August 2016 Spotlight on Optics. This work is a collaboration with the JHU Integrated Photonics Laboratory.

We won a Catalyst Award from the university to support our research on computational imaging. Much thanks to the Office of the Provost for supporting our research!

We won a grant from the National Science Foundation to develop an ultrahigh-speed imaging system with frame rates beyond a terahertz using compressive techniques. Much thanks to the NSF Division of Electrical, Communications and Cyber Systems for supporting our research!

Prof. Foster is giving an invited talk on our research in July at the 2016 IEEE Photonics Society Summer Topicals Meeting Series on Photonic Hardware Accelerators and Brain Inspired Computing (PAHAC).

Congratulations to Sam and Milad for winning first place at the Microwave Photonics Design Competition at IMS 2016

Bryan, Jasper, Jaewook (Jeff), and Milad are all giving talks on our research in June at the 2016 Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics

Prof. Foster is giving an invited talk on our research in March at the 2016 Optical Fiber Communication (OFC) conference.

Bryan is giving a talk and presenting a poster on our research in February at the SPIE BiOS 2016 conference.
