Welcome to our website!

Established in August 2002 by Professor Trevor J. Hall, the Photonic Technology Laboratory’s (PTLab) research  has concentrated on a unique combination of photonics and embedded systems. Even though “photonic” is to optical what “electronic” is to electrical; a photonic system necessarily implies the combination of optics and electronics (optoelectronics). Moreover, whilst 90% of the cost of a photonic system is the optics, it still consists of 90% electronics.

Research conducted at the PTLab is hosted at the University of Ottawa’s Centre for Research in Photonics and is (equally) diverse while focused. We graciously acknowledge and are supported by various national and international institutions, funding agencies and private industries.
