Swiss Photonics Basic Research
The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) supports many projects in basic photonics science, among them:
- Two national centers of competence, NCCR-QP, started in 2001 and NCCR-MUST started in 2010.
- Three Nano-Tera photonics projects, MIXSEL, IRSENS and NEXRAY
These programs do also support basic technology transfer activities.
