PHOTONEX | 11th & 12th October 2017 | Ricoh Arena Coventry
Programme for Silicon Photonics | Wednesday 11th October | Coventry.

The programme committee, Dr Callum Littlejohns - University of Southampton, Stephen Duffy - Optocap Ltd, Prof Michael Lebby - Lightwave Logic Inc, (USA), Dr Wyn Meredith -
Compound Semiconductor Centre (CSC), Prof Graham Reed - University of Southampton, Prof Alwyn Seeds - University College London invite you to join them at Silicon photonics adoption in UK industry, a meeting in Coventry on the 11th October.

The committee is delighted to welcome Dr Andrew Rickman OBE, CEO and Chairman of Rockley Photonics and Prof Diana Huffaker, Director of Institute for Compound Semiconductors.


Have you considered presenting a poster paper? This is an opportunity for YOU to contribute to research knowledge, to meet with like-minded researchers, with industry scientists and to network at a high level.

We invite contributions for consideration for the poster session.

PHOTONEX EUROPE | Conference bridges the world of academia and industry.

One meeting that is set up expressly with the intention of giving industry the opportunity to discover how academia can assist companies to benefit from silicon photonics in new devices and systems is a new silicon photonics/compound semiconductor meeting. This is aptly called Silicon Photonics Adoption in UK Industry. The take-away from the meeting will be considerable knowledge about the adoption in the UK...
