Our mission is to conduct internationally significant research into the fundamental science underlying optical technologies and to develop novel technologies for real-world applications of photonics. We aim to foster a climate of innovation and interdisciplinary collaboration that supports our research programmes and provides a stimulating environment for our post-graduate students.

The group has four main research themes:

Electromagnectic Theory
Laser Technology
Optical Technology and Imaging

Our research aims to be adventurous and curiosity-driven but relevant to the wider photonics and photonics user communities. We welcome interaction with industry and try to ensure that our research priorities are informed by our industrial partners as well as by the academic community.
