The Centre for Advanced Photonics & Process Analysis (CAPPA) is at the forefront of photonics research in Ireland. Photonics is the study of the generation and manipulation of light, and is an important enabling technology for a wide range of applications. CAPPA conducts applied and fundamental research on photonics for applications in areas as diverse as telecommunications, medical devices, food and pharmaceutical manufacturing. CAPPA is a research centre of Cork Institute of Technology.
The activities of CAPPA have two main foci:
Innovation for Industry – CAPPA provides photonics solutions to companies in sectors such as photonics, medical devices, food and pharma, on scales from short-term consultancy to multi-year collaborative projects. This is primarily driven through the Enterprise Ireland-funded CAPPA Technology Gateway.
Advanced Research – CAPPA conducts internationally-recognised academic research on topics such as the non-linear dynamics of lasers and ultrafast laser physics, and the understanding of the dynamics of novel semiconductor materials and devices. This is supported by grants from agencies such as SFI, HEA and the EU.
