PGR cohort visit at Gooch & Housego (Photonics Technology, Torbay)

In June, our second year PhD students (2016 cohort) went for ca company visit to Gooch and Housego, a global leader in photonics technology in Torquay.

G&H are experts across a uniquely broad range of photonic technologies – crystal growth, optical materials processing, acousto-optics and electro-optics, fiber optics, DFB laser modules, precision optics (thin-film coating, birefringent optics, non-linear, planar and aspheric), RF driver electronics in addition to light measurement and calibration solutions.

The PGRs learned about the different components made by the company, and had the opportunity to explore the factory floor where they observed a variety of activities, including the construction of fused fibres and components headed for space.

We would like to thank G&H for hosting our PGRs to offer such insights in their business.
