Photonex 2017

In October, the Engineering Photonics team attended Photonex 2017; the UK’s premier showcase event for photonics and light-based technologies. The event was held at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry; home of the Wasps rugby team and Coventry City football club.

We were one of more than 90 companies and institutions exhibiting and were there to demonstrate some of the optical sensing and measurement solutions that we have been developing. The systems on display were the same as those presented at the trade show in Munich earlier in the year with the addition of a dual-channel swept source optical coherence tomography system for measurement of flow velocity in micro-fluidic channels.

More details on the individual demonstrators can be found here.

In addition to the trade show, the event hosted The Enlighten Conference, which included over 120 speakers in 15 programmes. Engineering Photonics had three talks in the conference, all within the Optical Metrology for Manufacturing programme.
