The Photon Science Institute is a multidisciplinary organisation in which physicists, chemists, engineers and materials scientists share expertise and experimental facilities. Our research interests are wide ranging and encompass fundamental photon-matter interactions, photovoltaics, photonics, optical and electron spectroscopy and imaging science. Increasingly our work is applications led, with projects supporting aerospace, healthcare, instrumentation and telecommunications areas. The PSI has a developing research base; in the past year new research on ultra-fast processes in materials, laser-mass spectroscopy and optically generated x-ray emission has begun. The recent embedding of the Henry Moseley X-Ray Imaging Facility within the PSI has dramatically extended the materials characterisation platform of the Institute.
