About Mesophotonics
Mesophotonics is commercialising breakthrough photonic crystal technology that allows light to be bent, routed and processed at sub-millimetre scale. This will enable multiple optical functions and complex systems to be implemented at high density on a single silicon chip, leading the way to low cost, high volume production of integrated optical devices. Additional optical devices will also be possible at efficiencies and sizes not previously achievable as photonic band gaps are used to modify fundamentally how light is generated inside photonic crystals. The company was founded in 2001 by Prof. Greg Parker and a team of 7 founders from 3 departments at the University of Southampton with expertise in modelling fabrication design and characterisation. Venture capital funding is provided by Quester Capital Management (London), BTG (London), Auriga Partners (Paris) and NIF (Tokyo). For further information see www.mesophotonics.com
