Mind games at Photonics West

From emitter and detector technology allowing researchers to measure brain activity, to thermal imaging for the iPhone, Greg Blackman recounts the technology on display on the show floor in part II of the Photonics West review

Pooling technology to advance photonic integrated circuits

Combining the various technologies involved in developing photonic integrated circuits is one way of furthering integrated photonics. This is according to Bert Offrein, manager photonics, and Jens Hofrichter, a postdoc, both at IBM Research in Zurich, who report from EPIC's workshop on photonic integrated circuits

Road to the clinic: opportunities in biophotonics

Turning biophotonic technologies into a clinical device is a long and difficult road. Jacques Cochard, Tematys founder, reports from the European Photonics Industry Consortium's (EPIC) biophotonics event, entitled 'optimising the road to clinical products', which took place 27-28 November 2013 at the Maastricht University Medical Center in The Netherlands

New strategies in solid-state lighting

The cost of producing LEDs remains one of the main barriers to implementing solid-state lighting in homes and industry. Dr Calogero Sciascia, senior scientist at SAES Group, reports from the European Photonics Industry Consortium's technology workshop at the Strategies in Light Europe conference, which took place from 19 to 21 November in Munich, Germany
