The mesophotonics team has a diverse range of technical expertise
offering strength in the design, fabrication, modelling and characterisation
to the success of integrated optics and photonics crystal design.
This technical expertise is coupled with a management team with
over 100 man years experience of bringing new technologies to the
Mesophotonics was founded by a team of seven scientists including
specialists in the fields of photonics, computer modelling, and
optical characterisation. They have been working together at the
University of Southampton to study photonic crystal circuits &
devices and are internationally recognised for their research and
contributions to the scientific literature and have a total of over
35 years experience in photonic crystal.
The team is expanding the company while retaining strong links
with the University of Southampton and its excellent facilities.
This, together with their breadth of technical expertise, allows
the theoretical understanding of wave guiding photonic crystals
to be extended to the implementation of devices which can be modelled,
fabricated, tested, measured and revised with a short cycle time.
In order for Mesophotonics to realise its potential, it is accelerating
its technical and commercial development plans and the team are
committed to establishing working relationships with commercial
organisations that can utilise photonic crystal circuits & devices
within their products. BTG, Mesophotonics' initial investors, will
also provide commercial and intellectual property management resources.
