Members of the Centre for Photonics and Photonic Materials October 2014

Welcome to the Centre for Photonics and Photonic Materials.

The CPPM is formed by around 30 academics, postdoctoral researchers and PhD students from the Department of Physics at Bath, who work together in an interactive and collaborative environment doing cutting-edge research in Photonics. Much of our work is based in our state-of-the-art fabrication facilities and our extensive optical laboratories, which are equipped with a wide range of laser sources and optical test gear. We also do extensive numerical modelling of both linear and nonlinear optical effects.

The CPPM provides an outstanding environment for performing cutting-edge research in photonics, whether as a PhD student, a postdoctoral researcher or a more senior visiting scientist. This web site describes the range of activities in the Centre, some of our achievements, and the opportunities to come and work with us in Bath.
