The Centre for Advanced Photonics and Process Analysis (CAPPA) is a research centre of Cork Institute of Technology, conducting both applied and fundamental research on photonics for applications in areas as diverse as telecommunications, medical devices, food and pharmaceutical manufacturing. The centre is co-located both in CIT's Bishopstown campus and in the Tyndall National Institute. CAPPA is at the forefront of photonics research in Ireland. CAPPA works in the area of photonics generation and manipulation of light, and a major strand of CAPPA's sctivities focuses on bringing the benefits of photonics technology to a diverse range of industry partners. Photonics has been identified as an important enabling technology for a wide range of applications. Photonics has been identified as one of the six key enabling technologies underpinning the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme.
