Welcome from our Director
The Photon Science Institute welcomes new collaborations and we are always available to discuss possible experiments using the astounding array of laser equipment we possess. Our aim is to become a research centre of excellence in the heart of the North West, which will produce the highest level of science and interact strongly with industry. We will attract top scientific star performers, the most promising and aspiring young scientists, and provide the strongest scientific challenges to the brightest and most able postdoctoral and postgraduate researchers from the UK, Europe, America and the Far East.
