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 […]
The University of Southampton’s Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) is to lead a £6.1m EPSRC-funded programme to develop the next generation of fibre optics and position the UK as a world-leader in this technology. Bringing together expertise from Southampton’s ORC, and over 25 research organisations and industry partners, the new AirGuide Photonics programme will transform future […]
Inquisitive minds are exploring the science of light through photonics outreach workshops run by experts from the University of Southampton. Over 50 secondary school pupils built holograms at the Green Lab agri-tech laboratory in Bermondsey this month as part of the PHABLABS 4.0 project. The European programme is engaging future generations of technicians, engineers and […]
