Dr Kerrianne Harrington
I am a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Southampton. I work on hollow core fibres and interconnecting them to other fibres, devices and systems.
Previously, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Bath. In my work with the Centre for Photonics and Photonic Materials, I built optical experiments to investigate nano- and micro-structures, often to image or explore how these structures interact with light.
For my PhD, I fabricated novel optical fibres, often for biomedical applications. Much of my research involved post-processing novel optical fibre fibre. Access to both the optical fibre tower, a taper rig and splicing rig allowed me a lot of freedom to develops novel optical fibres and devices for a range of applications.
