We have a very strong practice in optics and photonics and have handled hundreds of patent applications in the field at the European Patent Office and around the world. We have a proven history of securing commercially valuable patents in this space, including in complex areas such as ultrafast laser sources, supercontinuum sources, and STED and FLIM.

Our optics and photonics team includes PhD level specialists in fibre optics, laser systems, microscopy and biomedical imaging. Members of the team have lab experience with a wide range of photonics equipment and instrumentation including photomultiplier tubes (PMTs), semiconductor processing equipment, camera systems, spectrometers and streak cameras.

In addition to drafting and prosecution work, the team has significant experience and an impressive track record in high value opposition matters in the optics and photonics area.
