Organization profile

Organisation profile

The Centre is formed by around 30 academics, postdoctoral researchers and PhD students from the Department of Physics, 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 Centre for Photonics and Photonic Materials 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.
