The Stanford Photonics Research Center builds strategic partnerships between the Stanford University research community and companies employing optics and photonics in their commercial activities. SPRC offers member companies facilitated access to Stanford faculty, students, and researchers via faculty-led Working Groups, SPRC workshops and symposia, research project collaborations and visiting researcher programs.
Electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) is a technique for eliminating the effect of a medium on a propagating beam of electromagnetic radiation. EIT may also be used to eliminate optical self-focusing and to improve the transmission of laser beams through inhomogeneous refracting gases and metal vapors. Of particular interest to our group, EIT may also be used to make slow light and long biphotons.

SPRC is proud to support the National Photonics Initiative. The National Photonics Initiative (NPI) is a collaborative alliance among industry, academia and government seeking to raise awareness of photonics - the application of light - and drive US funding and investment in five key photonics-driven fields critical to US competitiveness and national security: advanced manufacturing, communications and information technology, defense and national security, energy, and health and medicine.
