We develop optical fibre with unusual structure and properties.
Centre for Photonics and Photonic Materials
World-leading research in the science and technology of light.
We use our research into cutting edge optical technologies to solve real-world clinical problems.
We study and control the most fundamental properties of light.
We use light to study nanosized objects, as well as using nanosized structures to manipulate light.
Our research covers a range of topics in nonlinear and quantum optics.
We develop scientific instrumentation from open source microscopes to next-generation astronomical tools.
The Department of Physics has received Royal Society funding for collaboration with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the University of Helsinki.
Physicists have created an optical fibre that uses the maths concept of topology to remain robust, thereby guaranteeing the high-speed transfer of information.
A delgation from the NATO Sensors and Electronics (SET) Panel Optical Technology Focus Group visited the Faculty of Science.
A series of workshops on photonic and laser systems in Sofia strengthen collaborations between scientists from the UK and Bulgaria.
Physicists at the University of Bath observe a new physical effect in chiral (twisted) nanoparticles.
Bath researchers are building innovative devices to access the deepest chambers of the lungs, as part of a major project to find coronavirus treatments.
