The electromagnetic spectrum, from radio frequencies through optical to x-ray, is the basis for a wide range of vitally important technologies that have applications in areas such as communications, health and security.
The UK has a long history of world-leading research across the electromagnetic spectrum but in the past has not always moved from invention to innovation to secure the full commercial potential of these discoveries.
The aims of this project were to:
identify areas of long-term opportunity across the electromagnetic spectrum
assess these areas against UK capabilities
agree a plan of action to help the UK exploit these areas
