Femtosecond lasers are being used to make measurement phantoms to check the performance of optical coherence tomography instruments.

Fibre Bragg Gratings are now used around the world monitoring a wide variety of things from wind turbines and yachts, to healthcare.


Fibre Bragg Gratings have been made at Aston since 1992.


Lasers can be used to make musically instruments such as laser harps
