Educational Kits

We realize that in the process of making knowledge, it is often required education stage to be able to apply an understanding of a concept. Therefore we also provide support for educational purposes within the concepts of optical and photonics.
For that reason we provide some products for the purpose of education in  understanding of physics concepts on optics and photonics.


OptoSci Photonics Educator Kits

Our principals OptoSci’s provide Photonics Educator Kits that offer comprehensive and fully self-contained laboratory based educational kits for universities, colleges, education & training centres teaching: geometrical & physical optics, optical waveguiding, fiber optics, optical fibre components, fibre optic communications, BER, WDM systems, Bragg gratings, fibre amplifiers, lasers, OTDR, optical networks, fiber sensors, biophotonics, nanophotonics, etc.

OptoSci’s photonics education packages:

  • Designed in collaboration with university academics
  • Cover core principles, key technologies & applications
  • Include all required optoelectronic hardware
  • Competitively priced with worldwide reference sites

instrumentation we can also design and supply fully integrated teaching and training labs covering areas from basic
optics, fibre optics and optical communications, through to advanced optical communication applications, instruments
and technology.
Each OptoSci education kit saves the tutor significant course, literature, and hardware development effort and

  • all optoelectronic hardware required to perform the experimental programme
  • manuals to guide the students through the background theory and experimental programme
  • an instructor’s manual which contains sample results and solutions for all of the experiments and exercises
  • a comprehensive set of background / lecture notes (incorporating tutorial examples, design exercises and case
    studies plus solutions)
