Novel photonic nanostructures for polariton lasers
European Commission Seventh Framework Programme
Marie Curie Actions - People
International Research Staff Exchange Scheme
POLALAS was the acronym of the collaborative project Novel photonic nanostructures for polariton lasers, which was funded by the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and coordinated by Durham University. POLALAS began on 1 January 2009 and ran for 40 months until 30 April 2012.
The project was part of the Marie Curie Actions - People - International Research Staff Exchange Scheme and involved the Universita Degli Studi di Roma Tor Vergata, the Centre for Physical Sciences and Technology in Vilnius, and the Ioffe Physico-Technical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in St Petersburg, as well as Durham University. The staff exchange nature of the project provided valuable opportunities for researchers to work closely with colleagues and gain access to specialist facilities in other European laboratories for substantial periods, and was particularly attractive to young researchers looking to gain experience and establish their scientific careers.
