UK Photonics beta launch

Drum of illuminated optical fibre

This is a drum of optical fibre, which forms a critical part of high-speed data networks

Today, UK – the knowledge-driven photonics portal – was made available to a select group of invited beta testers.

The site brings together a wide range of photonics related information, including organisations, capabilities/techniques, people and equipment, with the primary intention of facilitating the discovery of resources and collaborators via search and exploration.

The majority of the information contained within the portal has been gathered from websites and data sources and will be automatically kept up-to-date, ensuring that the latest information is available with minimal manual intervention or maintenance.

Over the coming months the portal will be further developed and improved based on the feedback from initial stakeholder reviews, before being released as a public beta. Keep checking the portal news section for the latest information.
