NEC Birmingham. Laser Manufacturing Zone: M62

The University of Southampton’s ORC is showcasing internationally-leading research in advanced optical fibres, high power lasers, novel glasses and silicon photonics, and the capabilities available from its £120M cleanroom complex – one of the world’s best facilities for optical and high-spec nanofabrication.

Demonstrations and displays include:

  • New Distributed Optical Fibre Vibration Sensor (DVS).
  • GLS (Gallium Lanthanum Sulphide) Infrared Transmitting Glass.
  • Examples of our latest hollow core optical fibres.
  • Optical components that include our SDM fibres (few-mode or multicore), incorporated in a collimator assembly.

We will also be providing information about our Silicon Photonics Fabrication capability which is free to access for UK academia until September 2019.

Please come and visit us in the Laser Manufacturing Zone on Stand M62.
