Industrial Photonics

This course will train physicists and engineers in the area of photonics, which is a key enabling technology, underpinning many areas of industry. You'll have the opportunity to undertake a three-month research or development project based with one of our industrial partners such as M Squared Lasers. We have a long tradition of cutting-edge photonics research, which supports our courses. Much of this work has resulted in significant industrial impact through our spin-out companies and academic-industrial collaborations. You'll also have the opportunity to develop your entrepreneurial skills by taking courses delivered by the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship.

Course modules

Compulsory modules: Research skills; topics in photonics: Laser and nonlinear optics; project training; advanced photonics devices; systems engineering project; research project. Elective modules: Optical design; photonics materials and devices (topics in solid state physics); optical communication (photonic systems).

Assessment methods
