Quantum Optics in Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch


I have been wondering what fate may or may not have in store for me, what quirks remain. This morning I had a dream in which patents were to the fore. I was defending a patent in an argument with some business geezer.

Our commune has around 1800 souls and it largely agricultural. There is no high technology industry, and many speak Breton. This makes it about half the size of the above mentioned village on Ynys Mon.

This from Wikipedia

In science

In 2020, a new species of bacteria isolated from soil collected in the parish of the village was placed in the Myxococcus genus and was named Myxococcus llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogochensis.”

Nearby up at Lannion there are a number of very high technology companies like Nokia and Orange. There are also fibre optic, fibre laser and Nd:YAG laser companies. This was part of the motive for moving here.

My patent application in spontaneous parametric down conversion is due for examination. There is an outside chance that someone might want to buy this off me if it gets granted. There would be a nice little local interest story. “Welshman in Pederneg gets a quantum optics patent granted in Newport, Wales”. It will probably be the first quantum optics patent here. It is similar to “Breton man in Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch gets quantum optics patent granted in Courbevoie” but easier to spell.

The story could get picked up more widely because the French like quirky things.

Anyway, it seems possible, given the dream, that something to do with patents may be on the horizon. If there are quirks remaining this is a likely source.
