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.
We study the theory of light propagation in photonic structures and model nonlinear interactions between light and materials
We develop scientific instrumentation from open source microscopes to next-generation astronomical tools.
We aim to develop a revolutionary technology that will provide quick bedside diagnosis and management of lung diseases in the clinical environment.
Imaging technology that detects deadly pneumonia infections in under 60 seconds is safe and practical for clinical use, a study has found.
Dr Richard Bowman has been awarded the Clifford Paterson Medal and Prize for his early-career contributions to the application of physics in industry.
