Dr Callum Littlejohns is the coordinator of the CORNERSTONE programme, a Silicon Photonics rapid prototyping fabrication service. He completed his PhD in the field of Silicon Photonics at the Optoelectronics Research Centre, University of Southampton in March 2015, having previously obtained a First-Class Honours degree in Electronic Engineering at the University of Surrey.
He is the Principle Investigator on an Enterpise project with University of Bristol and an EU project with Luceda Photonics.
He has a track record of excellence, having received multiple awards throughout his academic life, including the Information Overload category winner at the 2015 EPSRC ICT Pioneers Awards. Callum has published a book chapter, over 30 papers in peer-reviewed journals, and over 100 international conference papers, including a prestigious post-deadline paper at the 2014 IEEE Group IV Photonics conference.
The work completed during Callum’s PhD has been protected by two separate patents, both fully supported by the University of Southampton.
