In Lighting up Lockdown you will meet some of our students who took part in Glasgow Science Festival. They will guide you through photonics experiments that can be done at home. Photonics is the technology of generating and harnessing light (photons). Safety first, be very careful if using a laser pointer, follow instructions! To meet our students and discover recipe cards follow this link
The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Photonic Integration and Advanced Data Storage (PIADS) is a partnership between the Irish Photonic Integration Centre, Queen’s University Belfast and University of Glasgow. These partners are collaborating on solutions to the ever increasing quantities of data generated by today’s society.
The Centre’s focus is on developing highly-manufacturable photonic integration technologies related to the magnetic storage of digital information. However, the development of these technologies will be relevant to a wide spectrum of end-users – from telecommunications to biophotonics, in which optical technologies are applied to living organisms and health care.
