The Hollow Core Fibre research group is based in the Optoelectronics Research Centre at the University of Southampton in the UK. It conducts world-leading research on hollow core fibres, a type of optical fibre that guides light in an air core by surrounding it with a carefully constructed web of thin glass membranes. Our research encapsulates all aspects of research into these unique fibres, from theory and design through to fabrication, characterisation and application.
