The Future Photonics Hub is exploring photonic integration across all major technology platforms for the first time ever, working with partners and end-users across a wide range of industries to improve cross-platform capability, reliability, yield and to reduce costs.

The Hub will focus on understanding, adapting and integrating photonics in four critical technology platforms: high performance silica optical fibres; light generation and delivery; Silicon photonics; and large-scale manufacture of metamaterials and 2D materials.

By exploiting new functional materials and processes, we will improve the manufacturability and integration of photonics, leading to low-cost manufacturing and accelerating the wider adoption of photonics technology.
