An astonishing range of innovative ideas emerge when scientists and engineers come together to think about manufacturing. The Future Photonics Hub Industry Day aims to unite the UK’s excellent science base with companies, R&D organisations and funding agencies; showcase the latest research in new, practical and commercial photonics manufacturing technologies; and create opportunities to collaborate in developing […]
UK photonics manufacturing remains a largely hidden industry despite contributing £12.9bn per year to the economy and underpinning most of the products and services that we all use on a daily basis, a report released today remarks.
The magical internet-providing properties of fibre optics are well-known. But hardly anyone has heard of fibre optics that can diagnosis cancer or detect gravity waves, and Dr Matthew Partridge, at the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), is not happy about that. If you are curious about photonics, Matthew invites you to preview his Edinburgh Fringe comedy performance of ‘Fibre […]
The Future Photonics Hub (the Hub) has announced funding for five new research projects that seek to develop a pathway to manufacture for the next-generation photonics technologies.
The Future Photonics Hub will be joined by the National Epitaxy Centre and ChAMP – Chalcogenide Advanced Manufacturing Partnership – to demonstrate some of its latest research at the Materials Research Exchange event at London’s Business Design Centre on 12-13 March, 2018. This research is underpinned by £200M fabrication facilities at the University of Southampton […]

To help you find us at this huge and busy event, we have produced a handy schedule of all our talks across the three conferences, LASE, OPTO […]
The University of Southampton’s world-leading expertise in photonics and fibre optic technology has been awarded a prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education. The Queen’s Anniversary Prizes are the UK’s most prestigious form of recognition for a UK academic or vocational institution, with approval directly from The Queen and Parliament. A delegation from […]
An astonishing range of innovative ideas emerge when scientists and engineers come together to think about manufacturing.
The Future Photonics Hub Industry Day aims to unite the UK’s excellent science base with companies, R&D organisations and funding agencies; showcase the latest research in new, practical and commercial photonics manufacturing technologies; and create opportunities to collaborate in developing innovative solutions to key industrial challenges.
If you are working in photonics research, R&D, research funding, the photonics industry or in one of the many industries enabled by photonics, then this event is for you.
Whether you are from academia or industry, you have a valuable role to play in developing transformational and commercially-viable photonics technologies.
By attending our Industry Day you will:
– Open from 09:30 for a networking brunch – browse the exhibition and ready yourself for the full day ahead with a breakfast bap, fresh fruit, coffee and a Bucks Fizz.
– The conference programme will begin from 10:30 and run alongside the exhibition throughout the day, until closure at 17:00.
Activities include: full technical programme, keynote speeches, an update on the UK photonics industry landscape, an industry exhibition, speed-networking with our researchers, cleanroom tours, and a poster session.
A detailed event schedule will be published shortly.
The Industry Day is free to attend. Please book your delegate place in advance using the ‘Register’ button on our Eventbrite page.
Delegate registration closes at 23:30 on Sunday 9 September 2018.
