Can we fit a whole lab on a chip? Can we squeeze big data highways through nano-circuits? It may be hard to imagine, but all this and much more is possible with nanophotonics, the science of light at the nanoscale.

Nanophotonics research is addressing some of the most important challenges of our time, such as producing cheap and reliable point-of-care medical diagnostic devices and reducing the huge carbon footprint of big data. Be dazzled by the amazing science that underpins these new technologies, and discover how light is making our future bright.
