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 , spider silk , high-index nanoparticle and others. These were widely publicised. 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.
