Introducing the July issue of Electro Optics

Electro Optics July 2024 cover

Welcome to the July issue of Electro Optics, landing on desks and optical tables now.

In the latest July issue of Electro Optics, we shift our focus a little further away – about 100km away, in fact – to the section of the optics market that occurs outside the Earth’s atmosphere. We investigate laser-based optical communications in orbit, and the challenges of bringing high-speed data to the most remote regions on the planet, and also explore how interferometry, microscopy and spectroscopy aid accurate semiconductor inspection at a sub-micron level.

Expert international opinion

Photonics is set to be a key driver of technological innovation, both in orbit and down here on Earth, but don’t just take our word for it. Liam Lewis from the Centre for Advanced Photonics & Process Analysis in Cork City, Ireland, tells us why the race is on to find photonics talent in the Emerald Isle, and EPIC’s Technologies Program Manager Jérémy Picot-Clémente asks Mycronic VP Yi Qian about the relationship between photonics and AI.

Don’t come down to the surface just yet, however, elsewhere in the space-themed July issue, we learn how Omega Optical designed a custom filter solution to meet a tight launch deadline for a satellite project, and hear more on the subject in this deep dive into optical filters. Meanwhile, a Tech Focus roundup on Raman spectroscopy takes us through the technology, its applications, relevant industries and major players, and there’s also the usual roundup of the month’s most important and thought-provoking news stories from the past month.

Until next time…

In space, no one can hear you talk about optical communications, so our next communications-themed issue, dropping out of orbit on 16 August, will be exclusively sent to addresses on Earth. Subscribe to Electro Optics to make sure it comes through your door or digital inbox
