News from our 2020 CSIRO Alumni Physics Scholarship winner

January 25th, 2021

Benjamin’s project was ‘Coherent optical free-space frequency dissemination’. He developed an innovative system capable of overcoming the complex challenges associated with the stabilised free-space transfer of optical frequencies.

He used the 2020 CSIRO Alumni Scholarship to travel to France to test his prototype system in a practical experiment of an optical transmission between two buildings in Toulouse. The project was in collaboration with the CNES The French Space Agency.

His paper ‘Point-to-point stabilized optical frequency transfer with active optics’ was published in Nature Communications.
