Greg Blackman reports from a quantum technologies panel discussion at SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco
A microscope technique able to image every neurone in a fruit fly brain, and some of the remarkable healing properties of light for treating neurological conditions, were two topics discussed during a neurophotonics plenary session at Photonics West. Greg Blackman reports
A lidar sensor for self-driving vehicles, a sensor detecting nano-vibrations of the body, and a high-luminance white light source were among the winners of the 2018 Prism Awards
Greg Blackman reports from SPIE Photonics West, where the first image sensors based on graphene-CMOS integration were on display
With the industry gearing up for Photonics West 2018, Dr Eugene Arthurs, CEO, and Peter Hallett, director of marketing and industry relations, SPIE, point to science advocacy and education outreach as key for the future of photonics
Dr Eugene Arthurs has announced he is to retire as CEO of SPIE on 19 January 2018. Arthurs has spent 18 years employed by the society for optics and photonics
A group advocating photonics with the UK government has emphasised the wide-ranging and innovation-driving role of light-based technologies – and the need for workforce training in the field – at its recent meeting in London
Ken Hanson, a medical imaging research scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), and Brian Lula, president of Physik Instrumente USA, have been selected as this year’s recipients of two top awards from SPIE
Differences of opinion still exist when it comes to fair pay and promotion in optics and photonics fields, but job satisfaction remains high overall, according to the 2017 SPIE Optics and Photonics Global Salary Report.
The report, the seventh compiled annually by SPIE, is the largest international study of the photonics industry.
