In August, Jane Hodgkinson and Dan Francis travelled to Munich to attend the Optica Sensing congress. Dan presented work on the development of an external-cavity quantum cascade laser spectrometer and Jane chaired a session on gas sensing. The conference, held in the Munich Hilton Park hotel in Tivoli, featured a good mix of spectroscopy talks combined with other areas of optical sensing.
