Southampton Prof To Help Develop European Photonics Strategy

Rob Eason joins board of Photonics 21

Professor Rob Eason from the Optoelectronics Research Centre at the University of Southampton, UK, has been elected to the board of stakeholders for Photonics 21, the European Technology Platform representing the photonics community.

Photonics 21 develops the photonics strategy for future research and innovation in Europe. Its board is the group's main decision-making body, and bears the responsibility for formulating key areas of research and innovation, which form the basis for future funding calls in photonics.

 "I am very excited about this role as it provides an excellent opportunity to represent the UK in its involvement with the broader European photonics community in the areas of research, education, development and manufacturing," said Eason who has research interests that span optical and nonlinear optical materials, laser-material interactions, the growth and characterisation of optical thin films grown by pulsed laser deposition, optical waveguides and femtosecond laser technology and applications, particularly in the area of direct laser printing.

There are 97 members on the board, with ten from the UK. Eason is the only UK member of this board from within the university sector.
