PhD viva success!

December 2020

Congratulations  to Laura Aime who successfully defended her thesis on the use of fibre optic pressure sensors in Formula One.

Review paper is Editor’s Choice!

July 2020

Our review paper, ‘Tapered Optical Fibre Sensors: Current Trends and Future Perspectives’ has been selected by MDPI Sensors as one of the Editor’s Choices.

Editors select a small number of articles recently published in the journal that they believe will be particularly interesting to authors, or important in the field. The aim is to provide a snapshot of some of the most exciting work published in the various research areas of the journal.

EUSPEN 20th International Conference

June 2020

‘Cancelled due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and replaced by a virtual conference

euspen’s international conference and exhibition provides a leading forum for industrialists and academics alike to review the best of world-wide industrial innovation, progressive research and technology developments. Delegates will gain an insight into the precision engineering and nanotechnology priorities of Europe’s leading industrial nation.

This event offers the possibility to see latest advances in traditional precision engineering fields such as metrology, ultra precision machining, additive and replication processes, precision mechatronic systems & control and precision cutting processes. Furthermore, topics will be addressed covering robotics and automation, Industry 4.0 for precision manufacturing, Precision design in large scale applications and applications of precision engineering in biomedical sciences.

Photonics Europe, Strasbourg, France: April 20

April 2020

‘Cancelled due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)’

The Photonics Europe conference is the largest of its kind in Europe covering the most significant photonics technologies—from digital optics to quantum technologies to attosecond science.

Today the French government announced that all events over 1000 attendees will be banned until further notice due to the coronavirus outbreak. Following this order, SPIE Photonics Europe is officially postponed.
