About the event

The Photonic Systems, Circuits and Sensors Group (PSCS), led by Prof Graham Reed, invite you to an afternoon research showcase and reception. The event will give attendees an opportunity to find out about the wide range of research carried out within the group as well as a chance for lab tours and discussions on future developments and possible collaborations. PSCS PhD students will also be presenting their research in the form of short talks and posters, with prizes to be awarded for the best presentations.

Topics covered to include:

  • Silicon photonics
  • Integrated photonic devices
  • Mid-IR photonics
  • Optical biosensors and biophotonics
