About CFP

Fundamental research in photonics is essential for the successful development of innovative and practical solutions in many areas vital to mankind such as energy, health, environmental protection, communications and data processing, to name a few. Centre for Functional Photonics (CFP) focuses on fundamental studies of light-matter interactions, as well as on design and applications of functional optical materials, with an interdisciplinary team of scientists from five CityU's Departments (Physics and Materials; Chemistry and Biology; Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering, Systems Engineering and Engineering Management & Electronic Engineering). The mission of CFP is to promote, coordinate, and bundle interdisciplinary research in the field of functional photonics at CityU, and to become a leading centre in the Asia-Pacific region in this field.
