The Photonics & Sensors Group is in the Photonics area of the
Electrical Engineering Division,
with a research focus embracing photonic and sensing devices,
functional materials and their integration
at system level.
We aim to address future societal needs with new system
functionalities through invention
of novel device architectures based on in-depth understanding of
basic material properties.
There is a wide range of activities within the group,
including phase-only holography and its applications,
high brightness multi-stable colour reflective displays, tunable
dielectric materials and devices for radio
frequencies, liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) device development, and
As well as conducting highly focused studies, we also
specialise in the development of demonstrators for
business exploitation and commercialisation. This is facilitated by
multi-disciplinary expertise within
the group and by our highly experienced team approach. Some of the
outcomes from the group have been successfully
transferred to our industrial collaborators for production.
