Hosted by the world-renowned Optoelectronics Research Centre at the University of Southampton, the Optical Engineering and Quantum Photonics group works at the forefront of photonics component and systems development.

The group specialises in creating planar optical waveguides using direct UV writing, most notably for developing quantum technologies.

We have recently commissioned a £1.3m dedicated suite of state of the art ultra-precision physical micro machining tools for applications in Quantum technologies, lasers, sensors, MOEMS and telecoms.
