DPhil Student

COLLEGE: St John's College



Camron is a DPhil student working on nanoscale fabrication techniques in liquid crystals using ultrafast laser technology for applications in optics and photonics, with a particular focus on virtual and augmented reality.
Prior to starting his DPhil, Camron Completed an MEng in Engineering Science at Worcester College, Oxford, where he specialised in optoelectronics. He has also worked at the University of Birmingham as a research assistant, where he contributed to research into Quantum Gravimetry.



Research Interests


  • Liquid Crystal Photonics
  • Augmented Reality/ Virtual Reality (AR/VR)
  • 3D printing
  • Laser fabrication and nanoprinting

My research brings together the high-resolution fabrication achievable with ultrafast laser writing and the science underpinning liquid crystals. I produce nanostructures in the electrically tuneable liquid crystals using a Ti:Sapph laser. This enables the production of photonic structures whose refractive index varies throughout the structure, enabling the development of novel photonic devices. This is of significant interest both to scientists, and commercial partners as it enables the design of new and better liquid crystal devices.
