Rank Prize symposium: Grasmere 2018

In October, Jonathan Hallam and Ralph Tatam attended the Rank Prize symposium on fibre optic and photonic sensors for industrial and healthcare applications. The symposium was held at the Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere, which is located in the beautiful Lake District National Park in Cumbria.

Jonathan presented his work on fibre-optic optical coherence tomography for high speed flow measurement applications, whilst Ralph discussed recent developments in engineering photonics for aerospace, manufacturing and healthcare.

The symposium was very much enjoyed with lots of three-course meals and a free bar that went on into the night.
