Home > Press > Photonex organisers respond to the need and goes "on-the-road" to introduce new light technologies to a broader community of scientists

Photonex Roadshows will be visiting two regions in June this year: the Edinburgh Conference Centre at Heriot-Watt University, Scotland (4th June) and Robinson College at the University of Cambridge (18th June). These Roadshows are a unique joint event, combining industry tutorials and a professional academic conference with a supplier's exhibition.

Photonex organisers respond to the need and goes "on-the-road" to introduce new light technologies to a broader community of scientists

Cambridge, UK | Posted on March 23rd, 2014

Displaying a broad range of components, instruments and systems, these Roadshows are just like a ‘mini' PHOTONEX and bring together the UK's top photonics technology suppliers, leading experts and guest speakers for special one-day-only events, not at all dissimilar to the larger national event in Coventry

As always, the meeting and whole event is free to attend. Advanced registration is needed for the conference and exhibition. Please register to visit or to receive more details via the website

Visitors to the Scotland and Cambridge Roadshows this year can look forward to an in-depth conference and a range of photonics tutorials on the latest techniques and instrumentation from leading scientists and technology experts. The conference, ‘Advances in Photonic Tools and Techniques for the life sciences', (first held at Imperial College London in 2013) embraces new biophotonic techniques being applied in the life sciences, with photonics and light technologies now being adopted across disciplines. This conference will be of particular interest to people wanting to learn more about technologies outside their immediate area of expertise or to hear leading academics in their own field. Speakers such as Dr Topun Austin (Neuroscience Cambridge) will give a talk "Shining light on the new born brain" and Prof Adrian Podoleanu (University of Kent) will be talking about "A New Tool for Life Sciences, Master/Slave Optical Coherence Tomography."

Exhibiting companies are further supporting the Roadshows by giving in-depth tutorials on key subjects. Do you need to learn how to apply light technologies? Attendees will learn much more in these half hour sessions than can be learnt following hours of confusing internet research.

Tutorials will feature on theory, advances, techniques, technology comparisons and features to look out for when choosing your equipment for your next project.

Are you considering an application that light technology might solve? Interested parties are urged to visit the Photonex Roadshow websites, and where they will be able to learn more about subjects to be covered at the event.

Commenting from an earlier Roadshow, Dr Simon Schultz of Imperial College said: "There has been an excellent attendance throughout the day, the topic was of great interest, a really successful day all round with interesting speakers and visitors".
