Welcome to the UK portal for photonics equipment and expertise

This portal is a unique window onto photonics skills, equipment and collaboration potential. The information is automatically gathered and updated from the web, and thus represents what academic groups and companies say about themselves and their collaborations.

The aim of the portal is to make it easy for you to find the expertise you need. Ideal for searching for long term collaborators for joint projects or solving short term one off problems.

If you’re interested in a particular area the best starting point is to search or browse in Capabilities & Techniques, or you can search for people by name. You will find other jumping off points on the menu to the left, or see the example queries which further illustrate how to get the most from the portal and what to expect.

To find out more about the development of the Portal, the features it offers, and the people involved in making it happen, check the About page.

The portal has been developed by the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Photonics, based at the University of Southampton.
