Photonics Technology Roadshow to focus on bio-imaging during Photonex Scotland

May 28, 2014
On June 4, Photonex Scotland show will host an in-depth conference on the latest techniques and instrumentation in biophotonics, including the application of super-resolution microscopy.

On June 4, Photonex Scotland show will host an in-depth conference on the latest techniques and instrumentation in biophotonics, including the application of super-resolution microscopy to observe single molecule organisation and dynamics, progress in CMOS single photon sensors for the life sciences, and fast fluorescence lifetime imaging techniques for solid-state single-photon imagers. The show itself has attracted about 35 exhibitors.

The conference, to be held at Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, Scotland) and called the Photonics Technology Roadshow, has taken the theme of "technology integration enabling imaging over many scales: from molecules to man." It is supported by ESRIC (the Edinburgh Super-resolution Imaging Consortium) and will be of particular interest to people wanting to learn more about technologies outside their immediate area of expertise or to hear leading academics in their own field.

Attendees will have the rare opportunity to hear a talk by Prof. Dr. Graeme Whyte, Engineering Advanced Materials, University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), who will be giving a presentation entitled: Optical traps for single cell tomography.

First held at Imperial College London in 2013, the technical conference has ensured its international quality with an invited program, including presentations by eminent European research scientists. In parallel, a photonics tutorial program will be held focusing on theory, advances, techniques, technology comparisons, and features to look out for when choosing photonics equipment for a project. Some tutorial titles are: Silicon photomultipliers--applications and recent advances, Real-world applications of terahertz.
