Photonics is a vital cross cutting technology, already impacting all of our daily lives from powering the internet to enabling rapid diagnostic testing. Yet we are only at the beginning of the photonic age. This unique insight into where photonics research will be pushing boundaries a decade from now draws on the insights of 26 of the UK’s leading photonics professors and academics. This horizon scan provides a rare window on the future, inspiring debate, simulating research, and triggering early integration of next generation photonics into solutions to the whole gamut of society challenges.
Tune in from 12:00 Thurs 8 Oct for a summary of the Future Horizons for Photonics Research: 2030 and Beyond from the team who compiled the report, in collaboration with Photonex for unique insights on the future. The Zoom link to join the meeting will appear from 11:45. Catch-up on the presentations via the SPIE digital library links below (available shortly) (registration required).
