We are interested in applying our holographic and optical expertise to real world problems. This includes optical correlators, projectors, headsets, cancer detection, optical fibres, nanophotonics, lithography and even additive manufacture.
Strategy and Vision
Looking forward, we envision three areas to be of particular interest:
- Application-driven research, including 2D holography, 3D holography, additive manufacuture, UV lithography, compressive sensing, multispectral imaging, endoscopy, early-stage cancer detection, modal multiplexing in optical fibres, and lensless imaging through optical fibres
- Photonic device research, developing the newest generation of spatial light modulators, colour filters, optical correlators, optical switches, lasers, fibre sensors, etc.
- Fundamental photonic materials research, with a focus on plasmonic materials and liquid crystals. This is complemented by collaborative work done with the Hofmann group and the Joyce group on carbon nanotubes and 2D materials such as graphene.
While these are our three key areas, we have a long history of research across the field of optics and are interested in any ideas that involve photonics, nanofabrication, embedded electronics or holography. To become a part of this read our Opportunities Page or email Tim Wilkinson

We are interested in advancing our understanding of photonic technologies, in particular 3D holography. We aim to develop multiple-user, full 3D displays that do not require the use of glasses or a headset as well as liquid crystal lasers, holographi...
Materials research involved in developing the next generation of liquid crystal spatial light modulators. In-house embedded electronics expertise allows us to develop novel SLMs with a low unit cost and fast development time.
