Fully Comprehensive UK Photonics Directory Launched

The first fully comprehensive directory of all companies and research organisations active in photonics and quantum within the UK is now available online from the Photonics Leadership Group (PLG).

UK Photonics Directory

Searchable by location, region, target market and tier of operation the UK Photonics directory from the PLG is a unique resource for those looking to understand the depth and breadth of the industry in the UK. Drawing on the Photonics Leadership Group’s quantification of the £14.5 billion industry over the last decade we are able to provide the first fully comprehensive picture of the ~1,200 organisations active in photonics in the UK.

Organisations are invited to claim their listing in the directory to update content and provide additional information for visitors. Two listing packages enable organisations to add logos, custom descriptions, embed videos, additional addresses, social media links, update addressed markets and include a direct contact form.  Any organisation missing is welcome to add itself to the directory.

Who are the Photonics Leadership Group?

The PLG is a voluntary collective of photonics industry and academic leaders nudging policy, strategy, industry and research in mutually beneficial directions
