Photonics



The Photonics group located in Electrical Engineering is pursuing world leading research topics leading to cheaper, faster information and communication technologies, inexpensive sensors to revolutionise healthcare and new methods of harvesting renewable energy.

Photonics research includes optical communications devices through the development of wavelength scale structures to guide, trap and collect light out to the fundamental physics of photonic quantum information.

Photonics at the University of Bristol comprises eight academic members of staff supporting ten research assistants and around twenty postgraduate students with a multi-million pound grant income.
