CAPPA, the Centre for Advanced Photonics & Process Analysis is an industry-led applied research group working in the fields of optics and photonics. CAPPA is at the forefront of photonics research in Ireland. Photonics is the study of the generation and manipulation of light, and is an important enabling technology for a wide range of applications. In 2015, the world market for photonics products was €447 billion, some €69 billion of which was produced in Europe. This has led to photonics being identified as one of six Key Enabling Technologies underpinning the European Union’s Horizon 2020 funding programme.

CAPPA conducts both applied and fundamental research on photonics for applications in areas as diverse as telecommunications, medical devices, food and pharmaceutical manufacturing. A number of CAPPA personnel are also co-located in the Tyndall National Institute under the MTU@Tyndall partnership.
