K. Turitsyn et al, Phys. Rev. Lett. 103, 133901 (2009)], new applications of semiconductor saturable absorbers developed by TUT for signal regeneration and laser radiation stabilisation, design of new fibre random lasers following pioneering work by UMONS [A. A. Fotiadi et al, Opt. Lett. 23, 1805 (1998)], optical turbulence approach in long laser systems implemented by IAE [S. A. Babin et al., Opt. Lett. 31, 3007 (2006)], and ultra-long random lasers recently demonstrated by Aston and IAE teams [S.K. Turitsyn et al., Nature Photonics, vol. 4, 2010], development of new fibres for lasers and sensing by IRE, application of advanced modelling methods and techniques developed by ICT.
