Organisational unit: Interdisciplinary Research Theme

Organisation profile

As part of the Technology and Innovation Centre, the Institute of Photonics is a commercially oriented research unit, formed as a partnership between the University of Strathclyde, industry and government.

Success for us can mean meeting new research and technical challenges, and building intellectual capital in the process, delivering projects to specific deadlines for individual industry partners, or enabling the commercialisation of technology developed in the Institute though spin-out, licencing or other knowledge transfer route.

Our objective is to bridge the gap between university research and industry in the area of photonics research and development. This is achieved through a portfolio of collaborative research and development projects which includes strategic long-term research, industrial contracts, industrial collaborative research programmes, and consultancy. Industry requirements significantly influence our research agenda.
