Women in Enabling Technologies

3 November 2020 @ 10:00 - 12:00

Are you a woman working in enabling technologies such as electronics, sensors, photonics, RF and microwave or acoustics? Join our workshop and explore why we are not seeing more women in these sectors. Enabling technology is helping to change our world, but how will the sector meet the needs of a diverse population if it is being shaped by a small section of society? Gender imbalance in the technology industry is a major issue, with only 5% of leadership positions…

Hot Electron Applications and Technology

25 November 2020 @ 13:45 - 17:30
Online Virtual meeting
Free

New research on “Reactive Plasmonics”, led by King’s College London and Imperial College London, is developing technologies to harness the large intrinsic thermal energy of light. Remarkably, “hot electrons” excited by light in metals achieve temperatures of many 1000°C, while the host metal remains near ambient conditions. This activates a range of opto-electronic and photo-chemical processes with applications in photodetection, sensing, catalysis and localized thermal treatments. Take part in tailored discussion sessions on three scientific themes and ask researchers about…

Scaling Up and Commercialising Metamaterials webinar

9 February @ 10:00 - 16:00
Online Virtual meeting
Free

Once an aspect of metamaterials technology has been identified with the potential in a particular application, there is a need to look to scale up the production to develop demonstrators and prototypes. This activity is often associated with a start-up or SME since the technology is brought in from research. The needs of these small enterprises in progressing, from this first step to commercialisation, can include a variety of services offered from academia to investors. Very often investors will only…
