Nanophotonics group

Microstructured Optical Fibre

Our group offers the UK's leading research programme on photonic metamaterials.


We perform fundamental optical physics and materials research which is critical for the discovery and development of new and improved optoelectronic technologies. Our interests and expertise include

  • Nano- and picophotonics
  • Photonic metamaterials
  • Optical imaging and metrology at the nanoscale
  • Toroidal electrodynamics
  • Electron beam nanophotonics
  • Laser-based deposition, forward transfer, and direct-write techniques
  • Generation and applications of XUV and soft X-ray radiation
  • Microstructured optical fibres
  • Discovery, optimization and applications of novel glasses, especially chalcogenide materials
