Welcome

Thank you for visiting Laser & Photonics Research team at Bangor University, North Wales, UK. The team is led by Dr. James Zengbo Wang, focusing on the development of next-generation photonics and laser technologies for wide ranges of applications in advanced manufacturing, super-resolution imaging, sensing, solar cell devices, among others.

One key scientific achievement by us is the pioneering of ‘microsphere nanoscope’ and super-resolution techniques and applications based on dielectric particle superlenses made from microsphere (click for news), spider silk  , nanoparticle and others. These were widely publicized. You may check our featured  interview  by microscopy magazine  and a comprehensive  review written by us on the technique.   

Our team also actively works  in nanophotonics and metamaterials (e.g ‘anti-laser’ filter), laser material processing (e.g artificial surface,  nano-marking) and solar energy, with  wide applications in industry.
