The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Photonics, based at the University of Southampton, has been set up with world-class facilities and capabilities for research into advanced manufacturing of new photonic materials, fibres and components. An important part of its mission is to enable the UK's photonics sector, which already accounts for a healthy 2.3% of global production volume, to go from strength to strength in the years ahead.

In the fast-developing, fiercely competitive global market for ground-breaking products and ideas, this means advancing the frontiers of understanding about photonic materials and devices. More specifically, the EPSRC Centre seeks to enable UK firms to extend their product portfolios and introduce innovative yet cost-competitive manufacturing processes.

Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Photonics is part of University of Southampton.

Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Photonics works (or has previously worked) with AWE, BAE Systems, Fianium, Fibercore Ltd, FiberLogix Intl Limited, Gooch and Housego Plc, M Squared Lasers Ltd, OpTek Systems, Sensoptics Ltd, SG Controls, SPI Lasers UK Ltd and Stratophase Ltd.
