Facilities

The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Photonics is based in the Mountbatten building at the University of Southampton. The building houses a purpose-built materials and cleanroom complex providing the foundations for innovation in photonics science and manufacturing technology. 

These facilities include over 730m2 of state-of-the-art cleanrooms and related characterisation and applications laboratories. The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Photonics therefore has access to unique fabrication capabilities over a broad spectrum of photonic materials, processes and devices including glass development, integrated photonics chips and advanced optical fibre fabrication.
