Novel Sources and Detectors:
- The last decade has witnessed many advances in sources and detector technologies and innovation continues. Reduced costs and innovation have ensured a steady adoption of photonics technologies and use in many different fields such as environmental, medical, industry, security, remote sensing and communications.
This meeting will draw on its success last year and will include for the first time the THz frequency range to enable the inclusion of opticalemitters and detectors around 1 THz.
Programme organiser: Prof Mohamed Missous, University of Manchester
