Research Group: Nanophotonics and metamaterials

Currently Active: 

Our Nanophotonics and metamaterials group are world-leaders in these burgeoning research fields. Having recieved the most prestigious UK funding awards, including a £6M Programme grant on Nanotructured photonic metamaterials, the Nanophotonics portfolio grant, and the Basic Technology grant on Optical Super-resolution. 

The fields of nanophotonics and metamaterials are concerned with achieving efficient control over light on the nanoscale, where a remarkable range of new phenomena are found with wide-ranging potential applications in low-power, high-speed, ultra-small devices.




£6m Metamaterials Grant Vision

To develop a new generation of switchable and active nanostructured photonic media and to create in Southampton a world-leading centre of research on Nanostructured Photonic Metamaterials.
