MOCCA- Multiscale Optical Frequency Combs: Advanced Technologies and Applications

Goal: Multiscale Optical Frequency Combs: Advanced Technologies and Applications   is a European Industrial Doctorate (EID) consortium of high-profile universities in the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Germany. It is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA).
The growth of the Photonics market and the great potential of Photonics in addressing global challenges creates a huge demand in innovative solutions and qualified experts with multidisciplinary skills in photonics and micro- and nano-technologies, able to advance photonic technologies towards applications ranging from spectroscopy to LIDARs. EID MOCCA responds to the huge demand of qualified experts, by providing for 4 early-stage researchers (ESRs) a world-class advanced training programme (TP), which will bring them to the level of the next generation of leaders in the field of photonics.
The unique Research Programme addresses demand in innovative solutions by developing a new generation of optical frequency comb (OFC) techniques, based on the expertise of world-leading academic and industrial partners.
