Our information society is reliant on an ever-increasing capacity for data storage. The next revolution will require the intimate integration of photonic elements into hard disk drives. This will create major spin-off and supply chain opportunities in novel lasers and photonic elements that will impact the broader information technology sector in areas like fibre-to-the-home.

Queen's University of Belfast and University of Glasgow and 12 industry partners, led by Seagate Technology, are creating a globally distinctive Centre for training in integrative photonics and its applicability to data storage and information processing. A unique feature will be training of researchers in distributed working where projects are managed and delivered across multiple disciplines and split geographic sites.
