LASER World of PHOTONICS is over and it was an incredible festival of photonics
The fair trade featured a combination of research and technology trends that are shaping applications and end markets. We loved seeing the offering and impact of projects in which AMIRES partners, namely 3 pilot lines lowering access barrier for innovative European business in three domains:
JePPIX: Open access pilot line for manufacturing of InP-based photonic integrated circuits.
Phabulous: Highly advanced & robust manufacturing technology for optical free-form micro-structure.
MedPhab: Manufacturing of diagnostic devices and instruments for treatment based on photonics.
Part of the trade show was for the second time also event on quantum technology where Quantum Flagship presented a portfolio of projects, including QU-TEST & QU-PILOT, recently launched projects which will support open testing, experimentation and pilot production capabilities for quantum technologies.
Moreover, automatica event on smart automation and robotics took place in parallel with LASER World of PHOTONICS for the first time. In their start-up competition, we could spot Meep, who presented themselves with their doctor-at-home device based on silicon photonics chip technology. A great example of innovative solution supported by PhotonHub and MedPhab ecosystems!
Finally, this event also marked 20th anniversary of EPIC – EUROPEAN PHOTONICS INDUSTRY CONSORTIUM and we wish them many more years of supporting partnerships in photonics industry!
