Professor Jonathan Knight


“Through innovative fibre design and fabrication techniques we can discover new optical physics far beyond the capabilities of conventional optical fibres.”

Jonathan Knight is a Professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Bath.

He runs a world-leading fabrication facility for novel optical fibres, which is equipped to perform advanced design, fabrication and experimental analysis of the basic properties of new fibres.

He is co-founder of the spin-out BlazePhotonics, is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America and was recipient of the IOP Optics and Photonics Division Prize in 2012.
