The Institute of Photonics, established in 1996, is a research unit focussing on applied photonics and is part of the University of Strathclyde. The Institute’s key objective is to bridge the gap between academic research and industrial applications and development in the area of photonics.
The Institute of Photonics is based in Strathclyde’s Glasgow city centre campus.The Institute’s semiconductor processing equipment is located at the West of Scotland Science park.
Currently situated at the Wolfson Centre, we are part of the Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC) initiative and will move to the new TIC building in late 2013. The University has prepared more information on the TIC.
Professor Martin Dawson will deliver a Plenary talk at PHOTON’14 - info
