Mesophotonics Ltd was launched in 2001 to design
and develop photonic crystal nano devices and take them to market.
A University of Southampton spin-out company, its team has unique
skills in modelling and understanding sub-wavelength structures.In
January 2005 Mesophotonics launched Klarite, an innovative nanostructured
surface material which allows the existing installed base of Raman
spectrometers to be more then 1,000,000 times more sensitive.
Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) have long been known
for their compact bright light, robustness, environmental friendliness
and long lifetime. The market and applications for LEDs has been growing
significantly in the last couple of decades where many barriers in
efficiency and packaging have been broken...
Photonic crystals are created when a strong periodic
modulation of refractive index in a material causes photons to be
localised in discrete energy states, giving rise to a photonic band
structure. This band structure is analogous to the electronic band
structure of semiconductor materials, but is created using man-made
periodic structures, rather than natural crystal structures...
Mesophotonics have developed a proprietary range
of photonic quasicrystals that provide novel functionality for a broad
range of applications. Photonic Quasicrystals are similar to Photonic
Crystal but rely on a quasicrystal arrangement of air holes. Quasicrystals
possess long-range translation order but short range disorder. Photonic
Quasicrystals offer predetermined high symmetry orders not achievable
