Centre for Doctoral Training in Photonic Integration and Advance Data Storage

Oclaro Ltd



Oclaro is one of the world's largest suppliers of optical components, modules and sub-systems for the global optical communications market and sees the CDT Centre as timely in terms of the industrial importance of photonic integration and the enormous potential for its deployment in future data storage systems.  Leveraging more than three decades of laser technology innovation, photonic integration, transceiver and subsystem design, Oclaro’s solutions are at the heart of the fast optical networks and high-speed interconnects driving the next wave of streaming video, cloud computing, voice over IP, SaaS and other high-speed and bandwidth-intensive applications.‌

Oclaro envisages collaboration with the CDT will deepen as outcomes progress beyond proof-of-concept and migrate into manufacture.  Both the research outcomes and the doctoral pipeline of the Centre will therefore be highly valuable.
