Optics & Photonics

A new range of products, our OptoSci training packages are designed to give universities and colleges an immediate solution to the provision of comprehensive and stimulating lab based courses in key areas of photonics technology, in particular in the field of optical fibre communications. Each educational solution includes all the required optoelectronic hardware with extensive literature and curriculum support. Instrumentation listed needs to be purchased seperately. Please contact us for further clarification.
