Research in the Optics and Fluid Dynamics Department has been performed
within the following three programme areas: (1) optical materials, (2) optical diagnostics and information processing and (3) plasma and fluid dynamics. The work is concentrated on combinations of systems, structures and materials. The systems work is focused on sensors, information processing and storage; the structures work is concentrated on pattern formation and diffractive elements; the materials work is centred on the understanding and utilisation of novel materials and nonlinear phenomena for optical components, including lasers, and systems. Scientific computing is an integral part of the work. Biomedical optics and polymer optics are areas of enhanced activity. The research is supported by several EU programmes, including EURATOM, by research councils and by industry. A summary of the activities in 1998 is presented.
