We are developing new 3D printing techniques for manafacturing specialty silica optical fibres.


Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications

Research Area

Photonics and optical fibres

We have been working on this topic for 5 years and made quite significant progresses. We have an idea research environment including several PhD students and key research facilities and materials.

Produce a brief report / presentation by actively participating activities in the research team, quickly picking up key technqiues, and independently completing 1 or 2 research tasks.
