Grant Awarded to Optoelectronics Research Centre

EPSRC Smart Fibre Optics High-Power Photonics Grant Awarded to ORC at Southampton University.

The Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) at the University of Southampton is pleased to announce that its “Smart Fibre Optics High-Power Photonics” (HiPPo) programme grant proposal has been successfully funded by EPSRC.

The HiPPo programme is focused on understanding how to control the properties of fibre lasers, to go beyond the “fixed” fibre lasers that are currently used in manufacturing and towards “smart” fibre lasers that are automatically reconfigured and optimised in real-time.

The start date for the HiPPo programme grant is 1st March 2023. The University is very much looking forward to working its partners in HiPPo, including AILU and some of its member companies.
