Lumenisity® Limited was formed in early 2017 as a spin-out from the University of Southampton to commercialise breakthroughs in the development of hollowcore optical fibre. We have built a team of industry leaders and experts to realise our goals to be the world’s premier high-performance hollowcore fibre optic cable solutions provider offering our customers reliable, deployable, low latency and high bandwidth connections that unlock new capabilities in communication networks.
Lumenisity is well funded by a consortium of industrial and private investors. We recently relocated our headquarters to Romsey, UK after a substantial investment was made in developing a manufacturing and testing facility.
The ORC is one of the world’s leading institutes for photonics research, based at the University of Southampton, UK. Formed in 1989 as an Interdisciplinary Research Centre, the ORC merges groups from Electronics and Computer Science, and Physics and Astronomy at the University. Led by some of the leading figures in the field of photonics, the ORC has contributed significantly to the remarkable growth of the photonics industry, including the optical telecommunication technology that underpins the internet, as well as many solutions in medicine, biosciences sensing, security and manufacturing.
The ORC fosters a strong culture of innovation, forging close industry links, which have resulted in a raft of spin-out companies, including Lumenisity. The ORC has excellent relationships with business and industry both in the UK and internationally, and provides support through joint research projects, consultancy, commercialisation of research, knowledge transfer and use of their facilities.
