Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies (AiPT), Aston University
Prof W. Forysiak is a EPSRC Manufacturing Fellow, with experience of academic research (Heriot-Watt, Aston, Arizona), industry (Marconi, Ericsson, and Oclaro) and technology transfer (Solstis, Royal Society Industry Fellow). His background is in the numerical modelling of nonlinear photonics and high speed optical fibre communication systems, and his present research interests include high speed transceivers for metro networks and wideband discrete Raman amplifiers. His research interests include high speed, optical fibre communication systems, optical devices and sub-systems, and enabling technologies for future, extreme ultra-wideband optical networks. He is a current EPSRC Manufacturing Fellow, and a former Royal Society Industry Fellow.
Since returning to Aston he developed new courses for our Applied Physics degree in (i) Electromagnetism and (ii) Mathematical Methods II (aka Computational Physics).
