Dr. Bill Brocklesby is a Reader at the Optoelectronics Research Centre at Southampton, and an associate member of the School of Physics and Astronomy. His research interests, originating from his doctoral work in Oxford and postdoctoral work at AT&T Bell Laboratories, span spectroscopy and microscopy of a wide range of materials and devices. For the last 10 years he has worked in the area of nanoscale imaging, with particular emphasis on the study of optical waveguide devices, demonstrating subwavelength optical imaging within devices such as fibre Bragg gratings and microstructured fibres, and nonlinear waveguides. He has been a member of the steering committee of the EPSRC-funded Nano-optics Network, and is a regular contributor to near field optics conferences, such as NFO. He has extensive experience with other microscope and scanning probe techniques such as micro-Raman spectroscopy, AFM, and STM, and ultrafast laser technology. He has over 50 journal papers in these research areas.

Dr Bill Brocklesby is (or has formerly been) affiliated with Optoelectronics Research Centre, University of Southampton, Scanning Near-Field Optical Microscopy, University of Southampton and University of Southampton.
