Part of £5.5M Nano-metrology Programme Grant

The UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has announced funding for a five-year research programme, from Feb. 2021, on NEXT GENERATION METROLOGY DRIVEN BY NANOPHOTONICS. This collaboration between the University of Southampton’s Zepler Institute for Photonics & Nanoelectronics and the University of Huddersfield’s Centre for Precision Technologies will harness the latest advances in nanophotonics, plasmonics and metamaterials research to develop optical metrology tools and measurement techniques that can be deployed in the real-world and novel metrology concepts for nanotechnology. 
Work at Southampton will be led by Prof Nikolay Zheludev, Prof Kevin MacDonald, Dr Eric Plum and Dr Jun-Yu(Bruce) Ou. The Programme is supported by project partners including major metrology instrumentation companies Taylor Hobson and Renishaw, as well as QinetiQ, Qioptiq, and academic partners at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
