The Photonics Tutorials for the Photonex London Roadshow are announced on the Photonex web site covering the latest photonics techniques & instrumentation

Effingham, UK | Posted on March 12th, 2013

Xmark Media in conjunction with Dr Cyril Renaud of the UCL-Cambridge Centre for Doctoral Training in Photonic Systems Development is pleased to announce the programme of tutorials to be run in parallel with the main conference of the April 9th Photonex London Roadshow.

In parallel with the scientific conference, 'Advances in photonic tools & techniques for the life sciences' there will be a series of 'Photonics tutorials' that visitors may attend free of charge. These will follow the format so well established at the national Photonex event, which takes place every October at Coventry's Ricoh Arena. Tutorials will feature on theory, advances, techniques, technology comparisons and features to look out for to assist attendees as they choose their equipment for their projects.

The tutorial programme will provide an introduction to scientists in research and industry considering using a particular technique for their work. This year they will include academic research speakers alongside speakers from industry suppliers of tools and accessories for the photonics marketplace. Dr Sally Day of the Electronic & Electrical Engineering Department at UCL will open the meeting and talk about some of the fundamental concepts used in optical systems. These will include descriptions of polarisation, coherence and phase and amplitude modulation of light. The descriptions will be illustrated with examples of interference and diffraction as well as resonant structures. The latter can be used as filters and to describe the modes found in laser devices and the former in diffraction from spatial light modulators used for laser tweezing. The talk will include descriptions of liquid crystal devices as well as other optical systems.

The programme continues with eight talks focusing on instrumentation with the programme being brought to a close with a presentation on future prospects for photonics technologies to be given by meeting organiser, Dr Cyril Renaud. He will report on his observations that photonic technology continues to be more broadly used in a raft of applications and is seen as key for gaining performance otherwise not possible by electronics. In this presentation, he will have a look at the next grand challenges that need solving and how photonics has inherent advantages for meeting these challenges. He will explore some current research and necessary technology innovations that could lead to the development of these photon-enabled solutions.

For information on the Photonex London Roadshow, visit www.photonex.org/london. Advance registration is essential for the conference, forms should be completed on-line. There are no fees to attend. Sign up now for this free opportunity to broaden your knowledge in the world of photonics. And put a date in the diary for October's Photonex meeting in Coventry: The Ricoh Arena, 16th-17th October 2013.

Photonex London is sponsored by the UCL-Cambridge Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT). The two world leading universities have combined their expertise in photonics to establish an exciting new Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Photonic Systems Development. The Centre trains postgraduate students, using innovative teaching and learning techniques and collaborates closely with leading companies and research centres worldwide.
