NanoPhotonics Centre

 

The Soft NanoPhotonics Collaboration started in October 2009, and brings together a number of interdisciplinary research groups in a new collaboration to create soft nanostructured materials with unusual and exploitable optical properties.

 

Academic Groups involved:

NanoPhotonics Centre (Phys)
Prof. Jeremy J. Baumberg
Thin Films/Interfaces (BSS) Prof. Ulli Steiner
Melville Polymers (Chem) Dr. Oren Scherman
Polymer Fluids (Chem Eng) Prof. Malcolm Mackley
