Focused on Use-Inspired Photonic Sensing and Metrology
Our CDT addresses the industrial emphasis on photonic sensing, metrology and associated device technologies, and the accompanying demand from the UK’s photonics-enabled industries for skilled researchers with a strong grasp of applied photonics.
Research projects are normally aligned to one of four themes: (i) Industrial imaging, visualisation and metrology; (ii) Photonic sensing; (iii) Computationally assisted sensing and imaging; (iv) Device technologies for photonic sensing and metrology.
Participation in the CDT is open to any company with a research activity in the UK that falls within the scope of the above themes. The CDT can help companies identify a suitable academic partner, who may be able to bring complementary expertise to the project.
Links to the research activities across our University consortium are provided below. Further information is available from the CDT or from the principal academic contacts at each of the universities. Please refer to the Contacts page for details.
