About William

William Wadsworth is professor of Photonics in the Centre for Photonics and Photonic Materials (CPPM).

His work includes design, fabrication and study of Photonic Crystal Fibres (PCFs). These optical fibres contain a microstructure on the scale of the wavelength of light which allows unprecedented control of the propagation of light in the fibre.

His particular interests are in using PCFs for new lasers and light sources, with applications from fundamental metrology and quantum information to imaging for medical and life sciences.
